Earlier today, Invest 90L was designated Subtropical Storm Alberto by the National Hurricane Center. It is currently near the Yucatan of Mexico. It is expected to become tropical, and move into the Gulf of Mexico this weekend. It will landfall early next week as a strong tropical storm on the Gulf Coast (Missisippi or Alabama). In the North Indian Ocean, Cyclone Meknu is currently a Category 3 equivalent cyclone, and is just hours away from landfall, where widespread destruction is likely, along with death.

The NHC just recently issued its final advisory on Newton. Newton was a Strong storm, packing winds of 90 mph in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Now, this means we no longer have any fully Tropical named storms in either the Atlantic or Eastern Pacific basins. While this may seem like a cool down, we are in September the peak of Hurricane Season.

Tropical Storm Gaston was a Hurricane this morning, however it has weakened to a TS. Gaston has a chance to re-strengthen.

Gaston could become the first Major Hurricane of the year. Some models were hinting at Cat 5 intensity, the first in 9 years
Invest 99-L has a 60% chance in 5 days and could be Hermine and strike Florida. Nevertheless, people in the path of Hermine should expect flooding and heavy rain as well as gusty winds. People should keep an eye on this.
Fiona has not fizzled out and is clinging to life.Read more >
Tropical Storm Fiona is expected to become a depression today according to the National Hurricane Center and is still not threat to land do to its small size and is expected to move east of Bermuda.
Invest 99-L could become a Hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico and landfall in Louisiana according to the GFS. This is obviously a huge concern. Read Yesterday's blog for more. The CMC model has it heading for North Carolina as a even stronger Hurricane. 99-L is definitely something to keep a very close eye on.
Potential Invest 90-L
