Hurricane Franklin, Tropical Storm Jose, remnants of Idalia, Gert and 2 more disturbances being watched in the Atlantic

Posted: Friday, September 1, 2023. 8:56 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  Weather experts are closely monitoring Hurricane Franklin, Tropical Storm Jose, remnants of Idalia, Gert and 2 more disturbances in the Atlantic.

Hurricane Franklin is expected to become an extra tropical cyclone tonight.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 80 mph (130 km/h) with higher gusts. 

Further slight weakening is expected during the next couple of days, followed by faster rate of weakening by early next week. 

Tropical Storm Jose is expected to be absorbed by Franklin tonight.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.

Little change in strength is forecast, and Jose is expected to become absorbed by Franklin tonight or early Saturday.

Idalia continues to move toward the east-southeast over the western Atlantic.

A tropical storm warning has been issued for Bermuda.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts.

Gradual weakening is forecast through early Saturday.

Restrengthening is possible over the weekend, and Idalia is expected to transition back to a tropical storm on Saturday.

The remnants of Gert regenerates into a Tropical Depression.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.

Some slight strengthening is possible today, and Gert could become a tropical storm once again. Gradual weakening is forecast to begin over the weekend.

Invest AL94 is a low-pressure system located west-northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. It has become better defined since yesterday.

In addition, the associated shower and thunderstorm activity continues to show signs of organization.

Based on these trends, advisories are likely to be initiated on a tropical depression or tropical storm later this morning.

Another tropical wave is expected to move off the west coast of Africa this weekend.

 Environmental conditions appear conducive for some gradual development of this system during the early and middle parts of next week, and a tropical depression could form while it moves westward to west-northwestward over the eastern and central portions of the tropical Atlantic.

This system has a 50% chance of formation through the next 7 days.
