Eye on the Tropics

Another Atlantic system could become next named storm

ORLANDO, Fla. — Channel 9 meteorologists continue to monitor the tropics.

7 p.m. Update:

It’s still hurricane season, and we’re watching yet another distant system over the Atlantic that may become Tammy.

Meteorologist George Waldenberger said we should have about two weeks to watch where this system ultimately goes, but early indications show another system recurving back out to sea.

Still, we must monitor if trends change, and for our neighbors in the Caribbean.



Previous story:

Channel 9 meteorologists are tracking two systems in the tropics.

Meteorologist Kassandra Crimi said Tropical Storm Sean is forecast to encounter a lot of dry and stable air and is expected to weaken over the next few days.

Meanwhile, she said, Invest 94L has a high chance of development over the next 48 hours. Once it develops, it will be named Tammy.

Crimi said models put this system close to Puerto Rico by next weekend. But there is still a lot of time between now and then, and the models can shift.

“We will definitely continue to monitor soon-to-be Tammy,” Crimi said.
