NHC watching three tropical systems in Atlantic

9-10-8amHOLT, FLA., Sept. 10, 2019—Three areas in the Atlantic Ocean that have the National Hurricane Center’s attention are still at a low chance for development for now.

Shower activity near the north coast of Hispaniola over the southwestern Atlantic has increased a little since yesterday, according to the NHC.

Little, if any, development of this disturbance is expected during the next few days while it moves west-northwest across the Bahamas and the Florida peninsula.

However, environmental conditions could become a little more favorable for development when the system moves into the Gulf of Mexico during the weekend.

Formation chance, though still low, has increased to 30 percent.

The weak area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave located a little more than 900 miles east of the Lesser Antilles is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms.

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

This disturbance is expected to move slowly westward across the tropical Atlantic Ocean for the next several days.

Formation chance through the next five days is a low 20 percent.

The tropical wave located just off the west coast of Africa is expected to move quickly westward during the next several days.

According to the NHC , some slow development is possible late this week and during the weekend when the system is several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

Formation chance is still low for this system during the forecast period.
