Tracking the tropics: 4 disturbances that could form

ORLANDO, Fla. — We’re tracking four disturbances in the Atlantic.


Meteorologist George Waldenberger said activity is picking up, but that is to be expected as September approaches.

The one disturbance that Severe Weather Center 9 is watching closely is in the Central Atlantic.

Right now, Waldenberger said there is a 70% chance of its development into a tropical depression or named system by Friday.

But he said we will have to observe it through Labor Day and beyond.

If the disturbance does form, some models have hinted at a curve trajectory back out to sea, but it’s too early to know that for sure.

Currently, there are no threats to Central Florida, but our weather team will let you know if this changes.
