CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) are watching an area of low pressure in the Central Atlantic. There is a chance that within the next few days this cluster of thunderstorm could become a tropical depression or even a tropical storm.
As the system moves toward the West-Northwest, there will be less wind shear, which is currently keeping these storms from organizing. Additionally, sea surface temperatures are over the minimum 80° necessary for tropical formation.
If this does develop into a tropical system, its path will be directed mainly by the Bermuda High, a semi-permanent area of high pressure in the Atlantic. Depending on the strength and position of the Bermuda high, the storm could be swung further out to sea or towards the East Coast.
NHC forecasters estimate a 50% chance that this area of low pressure will organize and develop into a tropical depression during the next 48 hours.
