More Storms On The Way? We’re Keeping An Eye On The Atlantic
Hurricane Laura was nowhere near as bad as we thought it was going to be for us here. And, you're not going to get any complaints from me about that. I'd rather be over-prepared and not have to use that preparation, than be under-prepared and regret it.
However, now we're already starting to keep an eye on a couple of different systems that are moving into the Atlantic right now. This is the graphic from earlier this morning from the National Weather Service:
Each spot marked with a yellow "X" has the potential to become another storm. Now, keep in mind, these aren't even classified as tropical depressions yet. They just have a "chance" of forming into a tropical depression, storm, etc.
Some other context for you: According to the National Weather Service, the "X" that is located further west has a 30% chance of forming a cyclone over the next five days. The one that is further east also has a 30% chance. So, both of them only have a low chance of formation. But, over the next few days, we'll keep an eye on them to see if they strengthen into something more.
Right now, it's anyone's guess as to what these two systems will become - if they even become anything at all. Hey, I'd be alright with them just fizzling out before they ever reach the Gulf of Mexico. You'd get absolutely no objections from me.
