NHC: "Potential Cyclone Two" Forecast To Become Tropical Atlantic Storm

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has issued an advisory for the Atlantic region on a "potential tropical cyclone two."

As of 8 a.m. Monday, the NHC Miami has warned of a potential storm, as a "disturbance continues to move rapidly toward the southern windward islands." The formation of a storm is possible within the next 48 hours for the North Atlantic, Carribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico. 

A tropical storm warning (not yet in effect for the South Florida area) means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area. Heavy rain, locally gusty winds and increased seas are expected to be the main threats in the Windward Islands from this potential tropical cyclone.

This system is no threat to the U.S. mainland at this time.

NHC says the disturbance is currently 400 miles or so off the coast of Trinidad, carrying maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour.

 This is the first season the NHC can issue advisories on systems that have yet to develop but pose a threat of bringing tropical-storm-force or hurricane-force winds to land areas within 48 hours.
