By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Category 2 Hurricane Earl in the Atlantic is forecast to become a powerful post-tropical cyclone on Saturday.
Earl is forecast to slow down considerably Saturday night through Monday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 100 mph (155 km/h) with higher gusts.
Earl is expected to complete its transition to a powerful hurricane-force extratropical low on Saturday and then steadily weaken through early Monday.
Gusty winds are expected across the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland over the weekend after Earl becomes a post-tropical low.
Swells generated by Earl are affecting Bermuda and portions of the U.S. East Coast and are expected to reach Nova Scotia and Newfoundland tonight and on Saturday.
Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) are also monitoring an area of low pressure located about 1000 miles east of the Leeward Islands that is producing limited shower and thunderstorm activity.
According to the NHC, a tropical wave located several hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing a disorganized area of showers and thunderstorms. No substantial development of this system is expected.
