A New Tropical Storm Will Form Soon Aug 12, 2017

Hurricane Season is well underway and the tropics are being monitored very closely by the National Hurricane Center.  Late Saturday night the NHC declared Tropical Depression Eight had formed. We told you about this area, that it was being identified as Invest 99-L about 200 miles northeast of the Turks and Caicos Islands.  Invest 99-L looked better organized Saturday for it to gain the tropical depression status. The storm is forecast to become Tropical Storm Gert later this weekend.

Most models have the storm tracking to the northwest for the next couple of days, before gradually turning to the north, and finally the northeast.  All but one model, has it tracking well to the east of the U.S. mainland.  And all models take it to the north of Bermuda.

When the system does in fact become a tropical storm, it will be Tropical Storm Gert.  That’s the next name on the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane List.

Hurricane season officially ends November 30th.  However peak hurricane season is just now getting underway.  Historically, mid-August through mid-October is the time when most tropical storms and hurricanes form.
