It’s not even June, but the tropics are already bubbling.
There have already been two named storms -- Arthur and Bertha -- and the National Hurricane Center is now keeping tabs on a system of disorganized weather in the central Atlantic.
The hurricane center is giving the area a 30% chance of formation over the next five days.
NHC has issued a Special Outlook for a low pressure area over the central Atlantic Ocean that is currently producing gusty winds. This system has a 30% chance of becoming a subtropical depression on Friday or Saturday before it moves over cooler waters. https://t.co/tW4KeFW0gB pic.twitter.com/YPpQVqQOzI— National Hurricane Center (@NHC_Atlantic) May 28, 2020
The official forecast calls for it to move to the north over cooler waters and an otherwise unfavorable environment.
Before it moves that far north, though, it may become subtropical Friday or Saturday.
If it does end up becoming a named system, it will be named Cristobal.
Hurricane season officially begins June 1.
