Two Atlantic systems could become named storms this week — FIRST ALERT WEATHER

Posted June 20, 2017

If a tropical system does develop, the combination of wind shear, and relatively cool waters will most likely prevent the development of a strong tropical storm or hurricane.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect from Intracoastal City, Louisiana, to the Mouth of the Pearl River.

NWS expects continued gradual development in the area as the system moves slowly northwest across Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula over the remainder of the weekend.

It appears nearly certain that a 93-L will become a tropical system in the Gulf by Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40mph (65kmph) with higher gusts. The exact track of this storm is very uncertain, with some models forecasting storm movement over Texas, some over the Florida Panhandle and others in between. The storm is expected to slow as it moves near or over Trinidad and the eastern coast of Venezuela tonight and early Tuesday, forecasters said.

In addition to the Gulf storm, Potential Tropical Cyclone Two is expected to bring tropical storm conditions to the Windward Islands Monday night.

The hurricane center didn't think so as of Monday morning, saying it should encounter a more hostile environment as it moves deeper in the Caribbean. Some areas could see isolated heavy rain.

The First Alert Forecast Team continues to track two areas of interest in the Atlantic; Invest 92-L and 93-L.

A large tropical wave has rolled off the coast and is now moving through the central Atlantic Ocean. It's pretty disorganized right now but that will likely change as it makes progress over the Yucatan Peninsula and out into the south or central Gulf of Mexico on Monday.

Hurricane Hunters are scheduled to fly into an area of interest in the Caribbean Sunday.

Both areas of disturbance have a high chance of tropical development.

Hurricane season officially began on June 1.

It is not yet classified a "Tropical Storm" because it doesn't have a closed surface circulation.
