Tropics Showing Signs Of Possible Development

The National Hurricane Center has identified three areas of interest for possible tropical development, including one area in the Gulf of Mexico.

"Disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the north-central Gulf of Mexico are associated with a trough of low pressure. Development of this system is expected to be slow to occur while it moves west-southwestward at about 10 mph toward the northwestern Gulf of Mexico and approaches the coasts of southern Texas and northeastern Mexico during the next few days," said the NHC Monday.

For now, the biggest impact to our area will be increased rain chances over the coming days.

There are also two areas in the tropical Atlantic under watch.

"A tropical wave located about 700 miles east-southeast of the southern Windward Islands is producing a large area of showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear conducive for development, and a tropical depression or a tropical storm is likely to form during the next day or so before the system reaches the Windward Islands Tuesday night or possibly while moving westward across the southern Caribbean Sea Wednesday through Friday," said forecasters. "Interests in the Windward Islands and along the northeastern coast of Venezuela should monitor the progress of this system, and tropical storm watches or warnings could be required for portions of these areas later today."

The next name on the 2022 list is Bonnie.

Another tropical wave is currently moving across the eastern tropical Atlantic southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.

"Environmental conditions could become conducive for gradual development later this week while the system moves west-northwestward at around 15 mph over the central tropical Atlantic," said the NHC.

The season ends November 30.
