MET Office issues tropical storm warning

Monitoring the Tropics: Two Potential Systems

The Hurricane Center says that satellite wind data indicate that tropical-storm-force winds are covering 100 to 150 miles northeast of the broad low.

All eyes are still on the two areas of interest within the tropics.

Hurricane hunters are scheduled to fly and investigate this developing system on Monday to determine if a well-defined center exists, as well as to monitor the strength of this cyclone.

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the coast within the warning area on Tuesday.

In addition to the Gulf storm, Potential Tropical Cyclone Two is expected to bring tropical storm conditions to the Windward Islands Monday night.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad, Tobago, and Grenada.

A tropical storm watch was issued for Aruba and Bonaire. But this is not the storm that we are most concerned about here in Central Louisiana.

Virginia shooter identified as man from Belleville, Illinois
The alleged shooter - identified by two federal law enforcement sources as James Hodgkinson , 66, of Belleville, Ill. - is dead. Sanders later condemned the shooting and said that he had been made aware that Hodgkinson had volunteered for his campaign.

In addition, large easterly swells of at least 5 to 6 metres (16 to 20 feet) are also forecasted to accompany the system. But, we will get a surge of tropical moisture affiliated with this system; boosting our local rain chance.

Check the Palm Beach Post storm tracking map.

Potential Tropical Cyclone Two is located in the central Atlantic just over 800 miles east of the Windward Islands.

Hurricane season officially began on June 1.

The next named storm will be Bret, followed by Cindy. This is expected to be able to overcome the system, and dissipate it by the end of the work week.

We still don't know much about the track forecast yet since a system hasn't even formed yet.

The main risk with this system, regardless of development, will be very heavy rain along portions of the Gulf Coast. Check out where models track the potential tropical system.
