Atlantic storm weakens, forecasts suggest no landfall on East Coast

Atlantic storm weakens, forecasts suggest no landfall on East Coast

Satellite images show that the circulation within the system has become better defined but the thunderstorm activity is not well organized.

There's a 70 percent chance the storm being called "Disturbance 1" could turn into a tropical cyclone.

Forecasters say it has the potential to become at least a tropical depression before it could move into drier and more stable air.

The Government Press Office encourages all to be vigilant during the entire hurricane season, as storms can form and strengthen in little to no time.

Tropical depressions are the least powerful form of tropical cyclone, and have maximum sustained winds of 38 miles per hour.

A tropical storm might develop in the far Atlantic this week.

In an updated forecast CSU released Wednesday, it's now calling for 15 named storms, eight of those becoming hurricanes, and three becoming major (category three, four or five status).

Tropical Storms Bret and Cindy formed within days of each other in June, Bret dissipating over South America, while Cindy cane ashore along the Louisiana coastline. The latest information from the National Hurricane Center can be found here.

In an average season, the fourth named storm doesn't typically arrive until August 23, so it appears 2017 is running ahead of schedule, making for a slightly more active season early on.

But Cangialosi said one busy month doesn't mean anything in terms of how busy, or not, the rest of the season will be.
