4WARN: Tropical Update
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - After a busy weekend in the tropics we are monitoring a new invest in the far eastern Atlantic. We have been keeping our eyes on this system for about a week and now it has a high chance of developing into a tropical disturbance within the next 2 days.
This cluster of thunderstorms remains broadened over an area of low pressure that is expected to travel northwesterly at about 10-15 mph. We will have to watch this storm closely as it will move into an area of the Caribbean that will be favorable for better tropical development.
By later in the week we will be monitoring this set up very closely. If it becomes a tropical storm (which it most likely will this week) the name will be Isaias (ees-ah-EE-ahs). More details from the 4WARN Weather Team will come as more data is retrieved.
