Not one, Not Two, Not Three, Not Four, But FIVE tropical systems are being monitored by the National Hurricane Center.
Invest 95L, which will likely become Tropical Storm Jay over the next couple of days. The Gulf of Mexico is extremely warm and with shear forecast to be die down across the gulf over the next couple of days, Jay will likely form in the gulf and could pose a threat to the Texas/Louisiana coastline.
Here is Invest 96L across the central Atlantic. This storm will more than likely be a fish subtropical storm as it moves away from the mainland United States.
Major Hurricane Florence
Here is Major Hurricane Florence. This storm is the strongest storm in the Atlantic Basin at this current time. Max sustained winds at 140 MPH with gusts up to 155 MPH. This is forecast to peak out at 150 MPH. Florence may become a Category 5 as she still has days out on the open water. IF YOU KNOW ANYONE IN NORTH OR SOUTH CAROLINA.......PLEASE TELL THEM TO EVACUATE. THEY HAVE SEVERAL DAYS TO EVACUATE!!!!!!
Here's Hurricane Isaac. He is the weakest hurricane out of the three hurricanes, nevertheless still a dangerous hurricane for the leeward islands. This storm....brings memories of Hurricane Harvey of 2017 as Harvey took the exact track of Isaac. He will run up against strong shear in the east Caribbean and will downgrade to a Tropical Storm. IF he makes it through the shear.....He could be a Gulf problem down the road.
Here's Hurricane Helene. She is the 2nd strongest hurricane in the Atlantic basin right now. Max sustained winds at 105 MPH with gusts up to 120 MPH. Moving West Northwest at 14 MPH. She is likely to also be a fish storm as she is forecast to go out to sea and stay away from the mainland US.
