The 3 other disturbances in the Atlantic to keep an eye on
According to CNN, there are three other disturbances in the Atlantic:
- Gabrielle is a post-tropical cyclone in the middle of the ocean.
- Off the coast of Africa, there's a disturbance that has a 20% chance of a cyclone forming in the next 48 hours.
- There's another could-be cyclone closer the Caribbean. That one has only a 10% chance of forming in the next two days.
Generally, the Atlantic hurricane season reaches a peak in the eight weeks surrounding September 10th.
Two-thirds of all the storms produced in a typical season occur during this period.
Conditions in the tropics become ideal for storm development during this time. By the end of August, water has typically warmed to the mid-80s in many parts of the region.
