With just over 2 weeks left of the 2023 Atlantic Hurricane Season, the basin is pretty quiet with just one area being monitored by the National Hurricane Center for possible development.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC), based in Miami, Florida, is monitoring the southern Caribbean Sea. According to the NHC, a broad area of low pressure is forecast to form in the southwestern Caribbean Sea around the middle of next week. Thereafter, environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development of this system while it meanders in the Caribbean Sea through the latter part of next week. The NHC expects no tropical cyclone development over the next 48 hours, but says there’s a 30% chance of formation over the next 7 days.
Elsewhere, formation isn’t expected anywhere in the Atlantic Hurricane Basin.
The 2023 Atlantic Hurricane Season ends on November 30. The new season will begin on June 1, 2024.
