Buzzez Fri, 11 Jun 2021 18:20:04 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Buzzez 32 32 The first tropical system to impact the United States could occur next week. NHC is closely monitoring Fri, 11 Jun 2021 17:26:00 +0000 A currently disorganized area of ​​low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico is expected to be monitored, especially along the Gulf Coast until the end of next week.

“Slow further development of this system is possible as it drifts north-west to north,” said the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

Right now, there is only a 20% chance of it turning into something tropical in the next 5 days, according to the NHC, and a 30% chance of developing in the next 7 days. according to other forecasters.

Both European and American computer forecasting models have this possible storm developing very slowly.

But it will be worth watching, especially mid-week along the Gulf Coast, as both models suggest a northward trajectory with the system.

The US forecast model for June 18, 2021.

If this forecast holds true, it would potentially make it the first storm of the 2021 season to hit the United States.

“The location of this potential low is exactly what we think of as the typical June formation area,” says CNN meteorologist Chad Myers.

Storm could enter a more development-friendly environment next week.

If this storm has a name, it will be called Bill. We already had Ana, which formed near Bermuda on May 22.

CPC predicts another above-average hurricane season

The Climate Prediction Center predicts another busy year in the Atlantic Basin. They predict between 13 and 20 named storms, 6 to 10 hurricanes and 3 to 5 major hurricanes, which are category 3 or higher.

In an average season we see 14 named storms, 7 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes.
