Tracking the tropics, none a threat to our area currently

More WFLA Tracking the Tropics

Mobile, Ala. (WKRG) – Here is the latest on the tropics. We do have a lot of areas we are looking at, but this is normal for the month of September. None are a threat to us right now, but it is important to stay informed, especially during this time of year.

Starting out, we have two remnant lows. What this means is the system has become post-tropical and has lost its tropical characteristics. At this point, these are disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Humberto is in the Atlantic moving away from the United States, while Imelda is in Texas and brought dangerous rain and flooding coastal Texas and surrounding communities.

We are also watching now Tropical Storm Jerry (this was a hurricane yesterday). This is expected to make a northeast turn early next week away from the U.S. and is expected to stay a tropical storm. Its track is outlined below.

Finally, there are two waves/areas we are watching sprinkled in the the Atlantic. These are pictured above. The first area is approaching the Lesser Antilles island chain and now has a high chance of development (red color). The last area is still on the coast of Africa, but has a high chance of development (red color) in the red shaded area pictured above.

Again, none are a threat to our area as of now. We will let you know if anything changes, but it is important to stay informed and be prepared!
