U.S. meteorologists are observing six systems in the Atlantic those two are storms that could turn into hurricanes, and another is a tropical wave expected to intensify when crossing Bahamas and Florida possibly this Friday.

Tropical wave turns on alarms

The tropical wave, located hundreds of miles northwest of central Bahamas, will move west across this archipelago and Florida and then flow into the Gulf of Mexico.

“Winds at higher levels are expected to be conducive to some development of this system as it moves slowly west-northwest over the east of the Gulf of Mexico early next week,” said the National Hurricane Center (CNH).

The system has a 30 percent chance of training in five days.

The CNH reported on tropical storm René that it has sustained maximum winds of 40 miles per hour (65 km/h), is predicted to be a gradual strengthening and would have hurricane strength on Friday night.

René, the seventeenth storm of the season, was located 730 miles (1,1715 km) west northwest of the Cape Verde Islands and moves west northwest across the Atlantic without presenting a threat to land areas.

Paulette will gradually weaken between Thursday and Friday, but it will intensify again and become a hurricane next week en route to Bermuda.

Its maximum sustained winds are 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts and were 935 miles (1,505 km) east northeast of the Leeward Islands and 1,250 miles (2,015 km) southeast of Bermuda.

The CNH warns that the tides generated by Paulette will reach areas of the Leeward Islands on Thursday night and Friday and will continue to disperse westward over areas of the Greater Antilles, Bahamas and Bermuda over the weekend.

“These storm surges are likely to cause breaking waves and sea currents that can put people’s lives at risk,” he warned.


Another low atmospheric pressure has formed in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico and is producing some disorganized rains and thunderstorms.

Slow development of this system is possible as it moves west and then southwest of the Gulf of Mexico and the CNH said it has a 20% chance of forming.

The tropical wave on the North Carolina coast is under-active and is predicted to move overland east of that state on Thursday afternoon, but no significant development is forecast.

Meteorologists said another tropical wave moving off the west coast of Africa is likely to turn into a tropical depression over the weekend as it moves over the east and central Atlantic. Has 90% chance of formation.

Another tropical wave is forecast to emerge off the west coast of Africa this weekend. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive to development and a tropical depression could form over the tropical Atlantic Ocean earlier next week.

Meteorologists have predicted “extremely active” cyclonic activity during this Atlantic hurricane season, which began on June 1 and ends on November 30.

The National Oceans and Atmosphere Administration (NOAA) predicts the formation of 25 tropical storms of which 11 could transform into hurricanes, six of which could reach the highest categories on the Saffir-Simpson intensity scale of up to 5, with winds of more than 119 miles per hour.
