By BBN Staff: Hurricane Dorian passed through the region last week, bringing massive devastation with it; however, weather experts are already watching several weather systems with the potential to cause more damage to the region.
On Tuesday afternoon, another tropical disturbance became Tropical Depression Eight in the eastern Atlantic Ocean and then strengthened into Tropical Storm Gabrielle. Gabrielle started out as a batch of showers and thunderstorms originally emerged from the western coast of Africa late last week.
Forecasters say that Gabrielle is expected to drift westward across the tropical Atlantic throughout the week and poses no immediate threat to land, but that it could become the next hurricane in the Atlantic Basin.
“Gabrielle may only be of concern for shipping over the middle of the Atlantic during the middle to latter part of next week,” says AccuWeather.com.
There is also another weather system forming some 200 miles northeast of Bermuda, that forecasters are monitoring due to the possibility of it gaining strength.
There was a Tropical Storm Fernand in the Western Gulf of Mexico, but Fernand has already made landfall and is expected to eventually weaken and fade throughout the week.
