Tracking the Tropics: Paulette and Rene form in the Atlantic


Tropical Storm Paulette and Tropical Storm Rene have formed in the Atlantic. Both systems are expected to intensify a bit. Rene looks to stay out to sea. Paulette could track farther west, but that remains unknown at this time. Plenty of time to watch.

An area of low pressure (Invest 94L) near Bermuda has a medium chance for formation through the next few days as it moves to the northwest toward the East Coast.

A tropical wave is expected to emerge off of the coast of Africa in the coming days. The National Hurricane Center is giving it a high chance for formation through the next five days. This will likely be the first of several waves to emerge off of Africa in the coming days and weeks.

September 10th is the official historical peak of hurricane season. The next few weeks have the potential to be very active. Next on the list: Sally, Teddy, Vicky, and Wilfred. Only four more named storms on the list before we would move into the Greek alphabet. This has only happened once on record, which was back in 2005.
