Tropical Cyclone Could be Forming in the Atlantic

Updated: May 21, 2019

We may have our first named storm of the Atlantic Hurricane Season tonight or Tuesday.

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a broad area of low pressure located several hundred miles southwest of Bermuda are showing signs of organization.

The system currently lacks a well-defined center of circulation, environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for the formation of a short-lived subtropical or tropical cyclone later today or tonight.

The disturbance is expected to merge with a cold front on Wednesday.

There is a 70 percent chance of the low forming into a tropical or subtropical cyclone in the next 28 hours.

Atlantic Hurricane Season officially begins on June 1, 2019. The first named storm will be Andrea.
