2020 Atlantic hurricane season update
The WRAL Severe Weather team is tracking the tropics daily throughout hurricane season with the latest on storm tracks, expected impacts and safety at the coast.
Hello, everyone. I'm meteorologist Mike Maze in the W Aerial Severe Weather Center with their tropical update for this Thursday evening. Well, Teddy has gone. Beta is just remnant area of rain moving through the Southeast and the tropics. Air quiet right now. Now the National Hurricane Center says they're not watching any systems in the Atlantic basin right now. They don't expect any kind of development within the next five days, but European model is spying something. Uh, next weekend, we'll take a look at the model coming up in just a moment. Let's clue in on what's happening with beta moving through the Southeast right now. We have had some light rain locally. Do that system today. Heavier rain comes in overnight tonight and during the day tomorrow, there's a small possibility that we could see some localized flooding. Broader view showing the Atlantic basin what we're gonna watch for. There's a couple of waves coming off the coast of Africa. So here's a look at the European model at six o'clock tomorrow evening, and we don't see anything organized from Friday through Sunday. Just a couple of waves moving on. Buy nothing that's showing any kind of development. But as we get into the end of next week and in the next weekend, watch the couple of waves that come in off the coast of Africa. These are two systems that we're gonna be watching. Of course, this is over a week away, and this may not happen, but that's the only interesting thing that's going on. And so we're gonna watch to see if my next Saturday and Sunday we see two waves coming off the coast of Africa developing into What is it? Alfa Beta Gamma Delta. So maybe gamma and delta. That's for the next two storms. Could be. So we'll be on the lookout for that. Other than that, very quiet in the tropics right now. We're just expecting rain here tomorrow from data. So that is our tropical update for this Thursday evening. Very brief and will likely be very brief over the next few days. Uh, let's see. Elizabeth will be in tomorrow with her update, and then Cat will be here tomorrow with her update. I'm off tomorrow. Have a good night.
