NHC Giving Two Areas of Interest Low Chance For Development

The National Hurricane Center is watching two areas of interest but does not give either much of a chance of further development over the next five days.

One system, a non-tropical low, sits off the North Carolina/South Carolina border and is bringing showers and thunderstorms to parts of North Carolina. While conditions are expected to remain unfavorable for development, the NHC warns heavy rainfall could be an issue for the Carolinas through Wednesday.

Forecasters are also watching a tropical wave east of Trinidad and Tobago. "Some slow development of this system is possible over the next couple of days before upper level winds become less conducive and the system begins to interact with the landmass of South America," said the NHC. "Regardless of development, this system could produce gusty winds and heavy rainfall over Trinidad and Tobago and the northeastern coastal sections of Venezuela through the middle of the week."

There have been three named storms so far in the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season - Tropical Storms Arthur, Bertha and Cristobal.
