ORLANDO, Fla. - It's that time of year and on cue, the tropics are very active as we head into the week.
Hanna made landfall in southern Texas over the weekend as a Category 1 hurricane and left quite a bit of damage. It is now located over mainland Mexico, landlocked and producing lots of rainfall.
Meanwhile, out in the distant tropical central Atlantic, a new system has the attention of the National Hurricane Center and FOX 35 meteorologists.
Invest system 92L came off the coast of Africa late last week. The system is still in its early stages but the National Hurricane Center (NHC) gives it a high chance of developing over the next few days. If it becomes a named system, it will be called 'Isaias' and would be our 9th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
The latest forecast models on Invest 92L show the system staying generally north of the islands through midweek. The Bermuda high anchored out over the Atlantic and a developing high over the northern Gulf should create a tunnel of sorts, helping the storm stay east of Florida, steering out to sea longer term.
The bottom line: This developing system needs to be watched for the time being.
