ORLANDO, Fla. – The first day of fall is later this week, but hurricane season, which runs through November, still has a lot of life in it.

Two tropical storms, Peter and Rose, developed over the weekend, but neither will impact Florida or the United States.

At 11 p.m. Monday, Peter was 110 miles north of the northern Leeward Islands, moving west-northwest at 12 mph with sustained winds of 50 mph.

Peter is expected to take a sharp turn to the north by mid-week on a projected path near Bermuda.

Rose, meanwhile, was 775 miles west-northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, heading northwest at 15 mph with 50 mph winds.

Rose is on a path into the open Atlantic.

Elsewhere, a tropical wave over the far eastern tropical Atlantic several hundred miles south-southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing an area of showers and thunderstorms that are showing some signs of organization.

Upper-level winds are expected to become more conducive for further development by midweek, and a tropical depression is likely to form by Friday while the system moves west at 10 to 15 mph across the eastern and central tropical Atlantic Ocean.

The National Hurricane Center says it has an 80% chance of developing tropical characteristics over the next five days.

It’s too soon to tell where the system will end up.

And the remnants of Odette are a couple of hundred miles southeast of Newfoundland.

The low-pressure system could acquire some subtropical characteristics by the middle of this week as it moves slowly eastward and then southeastward over warmer waters across the north-central Atlantic Ocean.

The next named storms will be called Sam, Teresa and Victor.
