National Hurricane Center Monitors Multiple Disturbances in Atlantic During Peak Hurricane Season
By Space Coast Daily // September 11, 2020
Hurricane Season runs until November 30
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – National Hurricane Center is monitoring multiple weather systems in the Atlantic on Friday.
Tropical Storms Paulette and Rene in Atlantic pose no threat to the US at this time.
One tropical wave located to the southeast of Cabo Verde Islands is expected to become a tropical depression in the next 24-48 hours.
Another system located near the Bahamas is expected to move west across South Florida today and has the potential to gain strength as it moves into the Gulf of Mexico over the next five days.
National Hurricane Center says surface observations indicate that pressures have fallen over the area since yesterday and, along with wind data, suggest that a broad area of low pressure could be forming between the northwestern Bahamas and South Florida.
The disturbance could become a tropical depression while it is near South Florida tonight, but it is more likely to become a tropical depression while it moves slowly west-northwestward over the eastern Gulf of Mexico this weekend and early next week.
