MIAMI, United States. — The passage of hurricane fiona by the Lesser Antilles and the formation of tropical storm Gastón in the central Atlantic has been accompanied by the formation of three other systems that could become tropical cyclones in the coming days.
The closest to the Caribbean region is a tropical wave found north of Venezuela. According to the National Hurricane Center of the United States (NHC, for its acronym in English) it is a system that brings with it showers and storms, but that still remain disorganized.
However, during the next 24 hours the organism will find better conditions for its development and could become a tropical depression.
The last report The NHC indicates that the low pressure zone will move to the west-northwest and will reach the central Caribbean Sea this weekend where the conditions are favorable for its development.
According to that US agency, the chances of the system becoming a tropical cyclone in the next two days are 80%.
The second tropical organism to consider is found in the eastern central tropical Atlantic. The NHC describes it as “a broad area of low pressure located several hundred miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands.”
The entity highlights that the system “continues to produce disorganized showers and electrical storms,” although the probability that it will become a tropical cyclone in the next five days is barely 30 percent.
More perspectives of development have the system that is in the eastern tropical Atlantic and that moves northward. At the moment, it has been classified as an area of rains and electrical storms located near the west coast of Africa. Its activity is associated with a tropical wave that has emerged over the warm waters of the far eastern Atlantic.
“The depression could form this weekend as the system slowly moves north between West Africa and the Cape Verde Islands,” said the NHC, which gave it a 60 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours.
