There are still only two at this time and one is looking more and more like it may make the Caribbean.

Hurricane forecasters¬†on Tuesday were tracking two disturbances in the Atlantic. One became better organized overnight and could become a tropical depression later this week, forecasters said. It is heading west, but it is too early to accurately say where it could go if it develops. The next available name is Fiona, if it strengthens into a tropical storm. The shaded area on the graphic is where a storm could develop and is not a track. The National Hurricane Center releases a track when a tropical depression forms or is about to form. The categories, in order of increasing strength, are tropical depression, tropical storm and hurricane (categories 1 through 5). The Gulf of Mexico is expected to stay quiet for the next 48 hours, forecasters said. Here’s what to know about the tropics as of 1 p.m. Tuesday from the National Hurricane Center.

Busiest time of the season

This is historically the busiest time of the Atlantic hurricane season. History says the peak is past but we have until 10 October with hig chance. I will stop her as usual and just say stay alert!

This is Tuesday’s forecast and we are still clear.
