Atlantic Hurricane Season Just 15 Days Old, Already Active.

National Hurricane Center is watching three system as of early Tuesday morning.


BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Tropical Storm Bill is now the second named storm of the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season — a season just 15 days old.

Bill is expected to have a short life as it churns in the Atlantic, but its timing is still notable. Named storms this early in the season, while not unprecedented, are certainly rare.

Two other tropical waves are also being watched by forecasters at the National Hurricane Center — one in the Gulf of Mexico, another off the coast of Africa.

None are immediate threats to South Florida.

This is the early Tuesday morning outlook from the National Hurricane Center:

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on recently 
upgraded Tropical Storm Bill, located more than 300 miles  
east-northeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.  

Disorganized showers and thunderstorms continue over the Bay of 
Campeche in association with a broad low pressure area. Gradual 
development of this disturbance is possible during the next couple 
of days while it meanders near the coast of Mexico.  The system 
should begin to move northward by midweek, and a tropical depression 
is likely to form late in the week when the low moves across the 
central or northwestern Gulf of Mexico. Regardless of development, 
heavy rainfall is possible over portions of Central America and 
southern Mexico during the next several days.  Heavy rains could 
also begin to impact portions of the northern Gulf Coast on Friday. 
Please consult products from your local meteorological service for 
more information. 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

A tropical wave located several hundred miles south of the Cabo 
Verde Islands is producing a large area of cloudiness and 
disorganized showers. Any development of this system should be slow 
to occur during the next few days. Thereafter, a combination of dry 
air aloft and strong upper-level winds will limit chances of 
formation while the wave moves over the central tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
