Because the western North Atlantic remains near record warmth,
the hurricane season chugs on and on.
The latest area of interest is ~ 250 miles east of the Turks and Caicos and is expected to move northward. This is likely to be “hybrid” system, part tropical, part non-tropical. As such, it’s strength is not expected to be overwhelming but it will likely interact with the first really strong cold front of the season later this week.
The areas most at risk are New England and particularly Nova Scotia. The strongest effects will be related to heavy rain and fresh water flooding will be a concern as the moisture shield associated with Invest 99L interacts with the cold front.
Bear in mind, these types of systems are not well understood – “neither fish, nor fowl, nor good red herring” – so the forecast will likely hop around over the next several days.
