A low pressure system located over Georgia could develop into our next tropical storm as it moves over the Atlantic later this week.
The low will bring heavy rainfall and the risk of flooding to the southeastern United States regardless of development.
It appears that the low will track along the Eastern Seaboard and from there may track over the Maritimes and then Newfoundland.
The system does have the potential to develop into a tropical storm.
So far this year there have been five named storms, Arthur, Bertha, Cristobal, Dolly, and Edouard. The next named storm will be Fay.
