Tropical Update – October 17, 2020

Few areas in the Atlantic we're still watching

Our latest look at the Tropics continues to show no active depression or storms while we still keep an eye on a few waves in the Atlantic Basin. The main area of interest continues to be a non-tropical low with showers and t-storms located 500 miles east-southeast of the island of Bermuda. With gradual development still expected, we’re expecting this to turn into a subtropical depression or storm within the next 2 to 5 days. We have this wave at a 90% chance of turning into a depression or storm within the next 5 days. Elsewhere, a broad low pressure is still set to form within a few days in the southwestern Caribbean Sea. With some gradual development still expected after it forms, we’re giving this future wave a 30% chance within the next 5 days to become a tropical depression or tropical storm.
