Chance of tropical development in the Atlantic


In a little less than two weeks, the Atlantic Hurricane Season officially kicks off.


As with previous years, there is some early activity in the Atlantic.


The National Hurricane Center is expecting a non-tropical low-pressure system to develop a few hundred miles northeast of Bermuda by tomorrow afternoon and produce gale-force winds.


The low is expected to move in a west-southwestward fashion over warmer waters on Friday and could become a short-lived subtropical cyclone over the weekend to the northeast of Bermuda.


By Monday the system is expected to move toward the north and northeast into a more hostile environment.


There is a 40 percent chance of formation through the next five days.


Regardless of development, this system poses no threat to land. The first named storm will be Ana. You can find updates on tropical storms in the Atlantic on our Hurricane page.
