Hurricane Fernanda Update: July 16, 2017

Tracking the Tropics update for 7/16/17

The First Alert Weather team is tracking the tropics where the first of the two areas of low pressure is being investigated by a hurricane hunter aircraft Monday afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms are developing near the center of this system and it looks like further development is possible. Heavy rain and gusty winds are expected there starting late Tuesday.

After that, less favourable upper-level winds are expected to hinder additional development. The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) in Miami said this morning that it has a 50 percent chance of developing in the next two days.

Forecasters says there's about a 20 percent chance that storm, located about 800 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands off Africa's west coast, will become a tropical cyclone.

A second system with lower odds of forming is also brewing in the Central Atlantic.
