Hurricane Bill projected path speculation is rising now that Hurricane Bill has become a serious storm. The projected path of Hurricane Bill is the first one of serious interest in the Atlantic hurricane season. For now, the Hurricane Bill projected path predictions have it remaining in the Atlantic Ocean for the moment. However, Hurricane Bill’s projected path may bring it on land within the end of the week, though people on land still have a lot of time to prepare.
The Hurricane Bill projected path still gives the storm a few days to become a real, threatening hurricane. It remains 1100 miles east of the Lesser Antilles, with maximum winds up to 75 MPH. However, the Hurricane Bill projected path speculates that it will pack a punch when the week ends.
Hurricane Bill is projected to become a major hurricane by Wednesday, as it begins to get closer to land. The first land to be threatened could be the Virgin Islands, as Hurricane Bill may skirt the northern edge. It is Bermuda that might get hit by Hurricane Bill by the end of the week.
However, other predictions have Hurricane Bill’s projected path missing land altogether. Though Hurricane Bill may increase in strength over the next few days, there is still a good chance that it may not make landfall. The biggest damage to the shores may come from high tides created by the remains of Hurricane Bill.
The Hurricane Bill projected path is still being watched closely, in case the best case scenarios are wrong and it does hit land. It is part of a massive new string of hurricane watching, as Tropical Storm Ana begins to die down, Tropical Storm Claudette reaches Florida, and Hurricane Guillermo finally starts to weaken in the Pacific.
Ana, Bill, Claudette and Guillermo have been long overdue, since hurricane season is officially starting later than usual. For the moment, it appears that the projected paths of each storm have them dying down before they cause damage on land. Yet their very appearance now has everyone getting ready, in case another storm actually does reach land and cause serious trouble.
Hurricane Bill may or may not be that storm, depending on if the projected path is correct. But it will be a big story over the next few days, as more ominous reports come in on its strength, and more speculation builds over whether it will die down in time.
