Tropical cyclone expected to move into Caribbean Jun 18, 2017

Above: Visible satellite imagery captures potential tropical cyclone ‘two’ in the Atlantic


The National Hurricane Center is working to give as much early warning for tropical cyclones and impacts this season.

For the first time ever, the NHC will issue advisories and graphical products on tropical disturbances BEFORE they actually strengthen into a tropical system. This happened for the first time on Sunday, as they issued a suite of products regarding invest 92L in the Atlantic.

With enough confidence in the forecast, the NHC issued text advisories to describe the likelihood of cyclone development, and a potential path that the storm will take, among other useful forecast information.

The potential tropical cyclone is expected to eventually strengthen to a tropical storm as it travels westward toward the windward islands and eastern Caribbean. Here’s a look at the forecast “cone”.

NHC forecast “cone” for potential tropical cyclone two.



That’s the way the graphic will appear from the National Hurricane Center. But at WeatherNation. we are able to take that exact information and share it with you on television, with a slightly different look. Same great information, different look. Here’s the way you’ll see the information presented on WeatherNation to give you an early warning as tropical systems lurk.


Potential tropical storm information as seen on WeatherNation


Often more important than the forecast path, is the expected impacts. This potential tropical cyclone is expected to bring tropical storm conditions to the southern end of the Lesser Antilles, including Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, Grenada, and surrounding waters.


Tropical Storm warnings have been issued long in advance of the expected storm development
