Tropical Disturbances (20% and 30% chance of development)

The National Hurricane center is tracking two tropical disturbances in the Atlantic.

Tropical Disturbance #1 (D1) is moving rapidly from the Cape Verde area almost due westward and is expected to make a northern turn as it approaches the eastern Caribbean. NHC rates this system as having a 30% chance of development in the next 5 days.

More relevant to NE Florida, Tropical Disturbance #2 (D2) is a collection of showers and low pressure located approximately midway between the Bahamas and Bermuda. It is expected to take a westerly course over the next few days. NHC only rates this system as having a 20% chance of development into an organized storm system. It will nonetheless likely cause bad weather in the northeast Florida region.

The season is getting going in earnest at this point. If you have not purchased hurricane supplies or tested your generator/chainsaw, now would be the time to do so.
