Stormwatch: Atlantic Activity Heats Up

And then there were three - and our latest hurricane.

The National Hurricane Center is watching three areas for potential development as of Tuesday morning.

The one with the highest chance of further strengthening is an elongated area of low pressure with disorganized showers and thunderstorms is moving west at 15 to 20 miles per hour across the tropical Atlantic.

Two other tropical waves for now have a low chance over the next five days of becoming a tropical depression.

Meanwhile, off the U.S. East Coast, Gert has become the season's second hurricane. While not a threat to land, the National Hurricane Center is warning of possibly dangerous swells over the next couple days. Those swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip currents from North Carolina up to New York's Long Island.
