NHC watching new Atlantic areas

two_atl_5d0HOLT, Fla., Sept. 19, 2018–The National Hurricane Center has identified two areas of interest in the Atlantic Ocean to watch.

A large area of disturbed weather located a little more than 1,000 miles east of the Windward Islands is associated with a tropical wave moving west about 10-to-15 mph.

Some slight development is possible during the next day or two before the environment becomes unfavorable for further formation, according to the NHC.

A second non-tropical low is forecast to form this weekend between Bermuda and the Azores.

Unlike the first area, conditions are expected to be favorable for subtropical or tropical formation while the low meanders over the north Atlantic.

Formation chances for both areas is low at 20 percent during the next five days.

As a reminder, this is still considered the peak of the hurricane season.
