National Hurricane Center watching 3 areas in Atlantic basin with potential for development

The 2019 hurricane season isn’t over yet, and to prove it, a third system popped up off Florida at the 2 p.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center.

None of the systems has more than a 50 percent chance for development over the next five days.

Hurricane season runs through Nov. 30

Showers and thunderstorms located over the western Atlantic between the southeastern coast of the United States and Bermuda are associated with a trough of low pressure.

This system is forecast to move northwest and a non-tropical low pressure area is expected to form when the system interacts with a frontal boundary in a couple of days.

The low could acquire some subtropical characteristics later in the week while it meanders off the east coast of the United States.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours: low, near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days: low, 30 percent.
If that storm were to merge quickly with another system west of Bermuda, tropical development would be unlikely. However, if the two storms remain separate, there is a greater chance for the midocean storm to become tropical in nature, according to AccuWeather.

Either way, it appears the midocean storm is likely to remain east of the United States.

A greater threat to the United States would be the area of concern to the west of Bermuda.

A low moving through this region will have the potential to cause rough surf and rip currents at the mid-Atlantic and New England beaches for several days, even if it does not develop tropical characteristics.

Coastal flooding, especially at times of high tide, could be a concern, according to AccuWeather.
