BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Two systems far east of Florida are likely to become tropical cyclones later this week. If they do, Victor and Wanda will round out the predetermined names for the season. Much like last year, the National Hurricane Center will the move to the Greek Alphabet.

Victor and Wanda both have an 80 percent chance of tropical cyclone development over the next five days. It is much too early to consider a path for either. The red oval on the map above indicates an area where a system may develop, not necessarily a direction of travel.

Meantime, Sam is no threat now to the United States mainland, but is an extremely strong hurricane. Peter’s remnants continue to dissipate.

This is the early morning tropical outlook from the National Hurricane Center for Monday, September 27th, 2021.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Mon Sep 27 2021

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane 
Sam, located several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

1. Satellite-derived wind data indicate an elongated area of low 
pressure associated with the remnants of Peter is located a few 
hundred miles southeast of Bermuda.  Showers and thunderstorms have 
become a little better organized since last night, and environmental 
conditions are marginally conducive for some further development of 
this system.  Peter could briefly become a tropical depression again 
during the next day or two while it moves northeastward at about 10 
mph.  By midweek, environmental conditions are expected to become 
unfavorable for further development.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.

2. Disorganized showers and thunderstorms are associated with a broad 
area of low pressure located several hundred miles southwest of the 
Cabo Verde Islands.  Environmental conditions are forecast to be 
conducive for further development of this disturbance, and a 
tropical depression is likely to form around midweek while it moves 
westward to west-northwestward at 5 to 10 mph over the central 
tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

3. A tropical wave is expected to move off of the west coast of Africa 
later today.  Upper-level winds are forecast to be conducive for 
gradual development thereafter, and a tropical depression is likely 
to form in a few days while the system moves westward to 
west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph over the far eastern tropical 
Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.
