BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The National Hurricane Center says a Tropical Storm could form on Monday, as the third week of the Atlantic hurricane season gets underway.

The system, marked as an orange “x” above, is 120 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. If it does develop, its life is expected to be short.

The system is one of two currently being monitored by the National Hurricane Center. The second is in the Gulf of Mexico. It has a 50 percent chance of development over the next five days.

Neither storm is expected to directly impact South Florida, but both serve as a reminder that this is the time to prepare for an active hurricane season.

This is the early Monday morning advisory from the National Hurricane Center:

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Special tropical weather outlook issued to update the discussion of 
the low-pressure system offshore the North Carolina coast.

Updated:  A well-defined, non-tropical low pressure system is 
located about 120 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.  
Satellite and radar data indicate that thunderstorm activity has 
continued to increase and become more concentrated near the center 
of the low early this morning, and environmental conditions are 
expected to be at least marginally conducive for tropical cyclone 
formation. If this recent development trend continues, then a 
short-lived tropical depression or tropical storm could form later 
today while the system moves northeastward away from the United 
States. The low will move over colder waters south of Nova Scotia 
on Wednesday, ending any opportunity for further development.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.

A large area of cloudiness and showers located over the Bay of 
Campeche is associated with a broad low pressure area. Some slow 
development of this disturbance is possible during the next few days 
while it meanders near the coast of Mexico, and a tropical 
depression could form late in the week when the system begins to 
move slowly northward.  Regardless of development, heavy rainfall is 
possible over portions of Central America and southern Mexico during 
the next several days.  Please consult products from your local 
meteorological service for more information.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.
Is a hurricane forming in the Atlantic?

The National Hurricane Center is watching two systems as of Monday, June 14th, 2021. One may become a Tropical storm in the Atlantic, the second is barely a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico.
