Hurricane Season to be Busier than Predicted

Category 1 Hurricane Franklin has formed east of Mexico

The Atlantic could have a new tropical depression in the next few days, and this one could move close to the East Coast. The "L" designation refers to a system under investigation in the Atlantic.

The National Hurricane Center has been watching an area of disturbed weather, Invest 99L, since it rolled off the coast of Africa more than a week ago.

Nintey-nine L will be guided around the clockwise flow of a large area of high pressure over the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

If it can overcome the dry air that has plagued most systems so far this season, it may have an opportunity to develop as it crosses the open waters of the eastern and central Atlantic next week.

99L is now moving northwest and might gather strength as upper-level winds become more favorable for its development over the weekend. This would be the most storm activity since 2010, NOAA said.

But it wasn't known until now that the contacts have continued, or that they have broached matters other than US detainees. Located on the northeast side of the island, the Air Force base retains a fleet of B52 bombers and fighter jets.

How quickly this occurs would determine how close to the coast of the US the system tracks.

"At this time, the more likely scenario is for the tropical system to stay offshore", Kottlowski said.

Forecast models put the storm on a northwest path toward the USA but then curve it away from the US without reaching the coast. This can occur even if the storm remains as sea. Schools are frequently used as storm shelters in Mexico.

Long before the adoption of a naming system by the World Meteorological Organization, hurricanes in the West Indies were named for the particular saint's day on which they occurred.

The greatest risk of flooding rainfall may be from DE to Georgia during the first part of next week.

Rainfall will likely be enhanced across Florida, and possibly southern Georgia, Friday and Saturday.
