Alabama Skies: Train of disturbances being tracked in the tropics
Published 10:16 pm Friday, August 18, 2023
The temperatures aren’t the only thing firing up this weekend. The National Hurricane Center is now monitoring four different systems for possible development.
The closest system is located over the Bahamas and is expected to enter the Gulf of Mexico early in the week. It currently has a 40 percent chance of developing into an organized system within the next seven days.
The system with the best chance of becoming something more than a few storms is still several days out in the Atlantic Ocean. This system has a 60 percent chance of developing within 48 hours and 70 percent chance within seven days.
The other two systems are between those two. The western disturbance has a low chance of developing while the eastern system has a 40 percent chance of development.
Closer to home, there isn’t much chance of rain over the next couple of days. Of course, with temps and humidity levels so high, there could always be a shower develop, but any rain will be extremely isolated.
