There is a possibility of Tropical Disturbance 96L forming in the Atlantic following Hurricane Beryl

Tropical Activity in the Atlantic: Invest 96L and Hurricane Beryl Updates

The Atlantic tropics continue to remain active this week, with Hurricane Beryl on its way to the Caribbean and another potential tropical disturbance brewing in the Atlantic.

Tropical Depression Chris, now over eastern Mexico, made landfall as a tropical storm late Sunday night, adding to the already active tropical weather in the region.

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring an area of low pressure in the central tropical Atlantic, named Invest 96L. Environmental conditions are marginally conducive for development, with forecasters stating that a tropical depression could form by the middle of the week.

Invest 96L is currently moving westward and could potentially impact the Lesser Antilles by Wednesday. However, the strength of the system remains uncertain due to its current disorganized state.

If Invest 96L strengthens into a tropical storm, it will be named Debby. The Atlantic hurricane season typically sees the fourth named storm by August 15 and the second hurricane by August 26. On average, 14 named storms and seven hurricanes form during the season, which lasts through November 30.

With the 2024 hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin already ahead of schedule, residents in the region should remain vigilant and prepared for any potential developments in the coming days.
