With roughly two weeks until the average peak of the Atlantic hurricane season, it’s no surprise that there are four areas of interest. However, only one area in the Atlantic has a high chance for development.
Showers and thunderstorms are becoming better organized in the central Atlantic and a tropical depression is likely to form this week.
We are also monitoring the northwest Caribbean Sea, the northern Atlantic and a tropical wave expected to emerge off the west coast of Africa. All three areas have a low chance of development. It has been over 50 days since our last named storm, which was Tropical Storm Colin. The next name on the list is Danielle.
Are you prepared for hurricane season? Now’s the time of year to get ready should a storm threaten us in the future. Get caught up on your tropical weather knowledge here.
