Now racing north into the Atlantic, Cristobal is expected to fall apart over the next day.

The National Hurricane Center continues to monitor three other disturbances, one in the Caribbean, another expected to move off the coast of Africa on Friday, and the third in the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Large swells continue to wash ashore from the Carolinas to New England in Cristobal’s wake. The system’s projected path is aiming toward Iceland. Potentially, it could bring some rain to the island.

As of 8 a.m. Thursday, Cristobal was 305 miles northwest of Bermdua, moving Northeast at 26 mph, with wind speeds of 75 mph.

OTHER SYSTEMS: The wave coming off Africa for now looks like it has the best chance of becoming the next storm. If so, it would be named Dolly. It’s too early to say where it might go.

The disturbance in the Caribbean appears to be headed toward Mexico’s Yucatan or the Gulf of Mexico. The area in the Gulf likely will move over land before it has a chance to develop.
