Henri was a hurricane at one point before it made landfall in Rhode Island. It was downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone and later to a depression.

More than 140,000 homes lost power at the height of the storm and several areas reported major flooding.

And the tropics are staying busy, with the National Hurricane Center keeping tabs on three other disturbances.

Disorganized shower activity over the eastern tropical Atlantic, several hundred miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands, is associated with a broad area of low pressure.

Little, if any, development is expected over the next couple of days. Some gradual development, however, is possible by the middle to latter part of the week as the system moves northwest at 10 to 15 mph over the central Atlantic.

The hurricane center said Monday afternoon that the disturbance has a 40% chance of tropical development over the next five days.

Meanwhile, behind it, another area of disturbed weather has developed in association with a low pressure system over the far eastern tropical Atlantic more than 500 miles south-southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands.

Some slow development will be possible over the next several days while the disturbance moves west to west-northwest at about 15 mph over the eastern tropical Atlantic.

The NHC gives it a 40% to develop tropical characteristics.

And a broad area of low pressure is forecast to form over the western Caribbean Sea later this week.

Environmental conditions are expected to be favorable for gradual development of this system while it moves west-northwest over the northwestern Caribbean Sea.

It also has a 50% chance of tropical development over the next five days.

The next named storms will be called Ida, Julian and Kate.
