Keeping an Eye on the Atlantic

After Hurricane Matthew and Nicole, there has been a much needed break in tropical weather. However, this may change by mid-week. The National Hurricane Center is keeping tabs on a broad area of low pressure located near the southeastern Bahamas.

Currently, upper-level winds are too strong, which makes it unfavorable for significant development. By mid-week, there are signs that the upper-level winds could become more conductive for subtropical or tropical cyclone formation.

As it stands now, there is a 30% chance of formation over the next 48 hours. This chance increase to 60% by Thursday. If this storm were to become named, next in line for the Atlantic would be Otto.
