The temporary pause on the Atlantic hurricane season is no more, with Tropical Storm Gonzalo and Tropical Depression 8 both churning in the ocean.
A tropical storm warning has been issued for St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Tobago and Grenada and its dependencies. Gonzalo formed on Wednesday in the central Atlantic Basin, and forecasts show there's a chance it could strengthen into a hurricane.
A Storm Surge Warning has been issued from Port Mansfield to Sargent, Texas. Additional strengthening is expected until the system makes landfall.
The forecasters say a "persistent mid-tropospheric ridge to Douglas's north" is expected to be the main driving force for the entire 5-day forecast period. Gonzalo continues moving west toward the Windward Islands with winds at 60 miles per hour as of 11 PM Wednesday.
AccuWeather is projecting the busy nature of the season to continue with up to 20 named tropical storms, seven to 11 hurricanes and four to six major hurricanes - Category 3 or higher. But there is at least some chance it will remain a hurricane in the Caribbean and if so, this storm will need to be watched closely to see if it makes the turn north towards the USA or moves west into Central America.
"A westward to west-northwestward motion with an increase in forward speed is expected through the weekend".
Tropical Storm Gonzalo is a little better organized Thursday evening and is expected to begin affecting portions of the Southern Windward Islands on Saturday, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Tropical Storm Eight was no stronger on Thursday morning as it continued on a path toward Texas, where a tropical storm watch continues along much of the coast.
Also yesterday, 60 to 70 miles per hour wind gusts produced damage to mobile homes and some buildings in North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Florida.
Some slight strengthening is possible before it reaches the southern Windward Islands. This is because the area of low pressure is very broad and will produce a few rogue rain bands toward us.
