Two Weather Systems In Atlantic Ocean Could Become Tropical Storms

Although some slight development of this system is possible today or tomorrow, by Thursday, upper-level winds are forecast to become unfavourable for tropical cyclone formation.

However, if conditions change it could form into Tropical Storm Humberto, making it the eighth named storm of the 2019 hurricane season.

The hurricane center expects it to track to the northwest, into the Bahamas and over the Florida peninsula over the next few days. However, environmental conditions could become a little more conducive for development when the system moves into the Gulf of Mexico over the weekend.

However, there's only a 30 percent chance of it forming into a tropical depression over the next five days.

It could increase rain chances for Alabama this weekend, however, and maybe bring a break from the oppressive heat for some.

But there are two other storms to keep an eye on, although it's too early to say if they will affect North Carolina and SC. It is forecast to be near the eastern Caribbean islands late in the weekend or early next week.

Forecasters are also watching a tropical wave that is midway between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Windward Islands, the southern islands of the Caribbean that include Martinique and St. Lucia, among others.

It is a weak area of low pressure, associated with a tropical wave and is producing disorganised showers and thunderstorms.

Tropical Disturbance No. 3, which just left the coast of Africa, will be hot on the heels of No. 2.

The hurricane center said it is forecast to track quickly westward across the Atlantic over the next few days and could have a better shot at development by the end of the week.

Hurricane season ends November 30.

All of these factors in place typically allow for one or more tropical systems to be active on the 10th day of September. But what do forecasters predict for the remainder of the hurricane season? It then passed over the U.S. Virgin Islands as a tropical storm on August 28 and took aim at The Bahamas growing into a powerful Category 5 hurricane with 185 miles per hour sustained winds that left at least 43 dead in the Bahamas as it passed over Great Abaco and Grand Bahama Island last Sunday-Tuesday. Barry came ashore in Louisiana on July 13 as a Category 1 hurricane. It's projected to move over the Bahamas, which was just devastated by Dorian, and Florida.
