Keeping an Eye on the Atlantic

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Saturday, August 12, 2017

We are keeping a close eye on Invest 99.

The area of low pressure, about 250 kilometers northeast of the Turks and Caicos Islands, is becoming better organized.

Over the course of the next couple of days there is a good chance of a tropical storm forming.

Early next week the storm is expected to take a northeast trajectory away from the United States.

Most long range models show the storm becoming a hurricane, perhaps as strong as a category two.

The system appears as though it will steer clear of land.

There is a slight possibility that the storm could have an impact of some kind on Newfoundland.

If the storm does become named, it will be known as Gert.
