Tropical Storms Peter & Rose Expected To Remain Over Atlantic

The tropics remained active Monday with two named storms moving over the Atlantic and the chance for another tropical depression to develop over the coming days.

Here's the latest from the National Hurricane Center:

Tropical Storm Peter was battling what the NHC called "increasingly hostile wind shear" Monday morning.

"Rainfall around the southern periphery of Tropical Storm Peter could produce rainfall totals of 1 to 3 inches, with locally higher amounts possible, across portions of the Northern Leeward Islands, including the Virgin Islands, as well as Puerto Rico and the northern portions of Hispaniola through Tuesday. This rainfall may lead to areas of urban and small stream flooding," said forecasters.

Swells from Peter could also cause life-threatening surf and rip currents for parts of the northern Leeward Islands and the Bahamas.

Tropical Storm Rose is not expected to grow much stronger at is moves northwestward over the Atlantic.

"At longer range, stronger shear and dry air should pull the petals off Rose one-by-one, causing the cyclone to slowly weaken," said the NHC. It's also possible Rose could weaken to a remnant low by the end of the week.

From the tropical weather outlook:

A tropical wave located over the far eastern tropical Atlantic several hundred miles south-southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing an area of showers and thunderstorms that are showing some signs of organization. Upper-level winds are expected to become more conducive for further development by midweek, and a tropical depression is likely to form by Friday while the system moves westward at 10 to 15 mph across the eastern and central tropical Atlantic Ocean.

Formation chance through...
48 hours: Low (20%)
5 days: High (70%)

A storm-force, non-tropical low pressure system, the remnants of Odette, is located a couple of hundred miles southeast of Newfoundland. This low could acquire some subtropical characteristics by the middle of this week as it moves slowly southeastward over warmer waters across the north-central Atlantic Ocean before moving northward out of the area over the weekend.
