NHC Watching 3 Areas Of Interest In Atlantic

The National Hurricane Center is watching three areas of interest in the Atlantic Ocean for possible tropical development.

One is a trough of low pressure stretching over south Florida and southwest Atlantic producing some showers and thunderstorms. The NHC says slight development is possible as it moves over the southwest Atlantic, but that window will close quickly after it merges with a low off the U.S. east coast.

To the northeast, forecasters say a broad non-tropical low between the U.S and Bermuda could acquire some subtropical characteristics as it moves north to northwestward by the end of the week.

Finally, a non-tropical low pressure system over the central Atlantic could become a tropical or subtropical storm later today or Wednesday, but conditions should become unfavorable for further development by tomorrow night.

For now, none of these systems are a threat to Louisiana.

The 2019 Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30.
