TROPICS: Warns the Bahamas of a “Potential Tropical Cyclone”

Tropical storm warnings have been issued for the Bahamas as a “potential tropical cyclone” is expected to become Tropical Storm Humberto this weekend.

Grand Bahama Island and the Abacos, which were devastated by Hurricane Dorian, are in the likely path of the storm and could receive several more inches of rain. From there, the storm is expected to head toward Florida where tropical storm watches have been issued for parts of the east coast.

The National Hurricane Center says it’s still too early to forecast the storm’s path, but several models predict it may become a hurricane off the southeast coast next week. (The Weather Channel)

Hot Takes:

  • This is not what the Bahamas needs right now.
  • September is the busiest month for hurricanes.
  • It could hit Florida as a tropical storm and then become a hurricane as it moves out to sea or up the east coast.
