By BBN Staff: With Hurricanes Lee and Maria’s departure to the United Kingdom, the Caribbean region had been void of named tropical systems.
According to AccuWeather, a new threat could be developing near the western Caribbean or Florida in the next ten days.
“Multiple factors will be in place that may favor several tropical systems to come about into the middle of October,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist, Alex Sosnowski said.
Residents and other persons with interests in Central America, Cuba, the Bahamas, Mexico and the southeastern United States are urged to monitor this situation for new developments. “Waters over much of the region are very warm and likely to stay warm for many weeks,” Sosnowski said.
“A tropical depression or storm could develop with little notice in the western Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico or in waters along the Southern Atlantic coast of the United States,” he added.
He also indicated that any development would depend on the changing of speed and direction of winds at different layers of the atmosphere.
There are two more months before the hurricane season ends.
