By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: It is the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season and there are currently 5 active tropical systems simultaneously.
The occurrence has only happened once before this in the history of the Atlantic Hurricane season. In 1971, there were 5 active tropical cyclones in the Atlantic.
The five systems being closely monitored by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) are Hurricane Paulette, Hurricane Sally, Tropical Storm Teddy, Tropical Storm Vicky, and Tropical Depression Rene.
Hurricane Paulette made landfall early today in Bermuda. Hurricane conditions are impacting the island.
NHC says that additional strengthening through Tuesday night is likely as Paultette accelerates northeastward to east-northeastward. Gradual weakening is forecasted to begin on Wednesday.
Hurricane Sally is forecasted to move over the north-central Gulf of Mexico today, approach southeastern Louisiana tonight, and make landfall in the hurricane warning area on Tuesday or Tuesday night.
Afterward, Sally is expected to move slowly north-northeastward near the northern Gulf Coast through Wednesday. A Hurricane Warning is in effect for Morgan City Louisiana to the Alabama/Florida Border and Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas including metropolitan New Orleans.
Tropical Storm Teddy is poised to strengthen as it moves through the Atlantic. Large swells generated by Tropical Storm Teddy are expected to reach the Lesser Antilles and the northeastern coast of South America on Wednesday. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions, the NHC reports.
Tropical Storm Vicky became the 20th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season. The NHC forecasts that Vicky will weaken by Tuesday night.
Tropical depression Rene continues to hang on as a tropical depression. Weakening is forecast, and Rene is expected to become a remnant low tonight and dissipate by late Wednesday.
