BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — In what may be the grand finale to the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season, a system is meandering off the northeast coast of the United States.

It is unlikely to be grow to the point of generating a name, but there is the likelihood that it will affect weather today and tomorrow. If you are heading to the northeast, prepare for what me be a stormy day or two.

Otherwise, the tropics are quiet as the hurricane season may be starting to wrap up. While it officially runs through the end of November, storms forming this late in the year tend to be rare — although certainly not unprecedented.

This is the early morning update from the National Hurricane Center.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Tue Oct 26 2021

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

A deepening, non-tropical low pressure system with gale-force winds 
is located about 250 miles east-northeast of Cape Hatteras, North 
Carolina.  This gale area is forecast to move north-northeastward 
today, and could acquire some limited subtropical characteristics 
before it merges with a frontal system by this afternoon. The 
extratropical low is then expected to meander off the mid-Atlantic 
and northeast U.S. coasts tonight and Wednesday, bringing rain and 
wind impacts to portions of those areas.  After that time, the low 
is expected to move eastward away from the U.S. coast, and could 
again acquire some subtropical characteristics while it moves 
eastward or southeastward over the warmer waters of the central 
Atlantic.  For more information on this system, including storm 
warnings, see products issued by your local National Weather Service 
office and High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather 
Service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.
