National Hurricane Center warns of three impending Tropical Storms

By: Staff Reporter,

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - TROPICAL Storms Paulette and Rene have formed and are currently churning out in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean, with further development predicted in the coming days.
    The two developments will be followed by a third that is expected to have a 70 percent chance of formation.
    That is the statement which came out of the National Hurricane Center on Tuesday (Sept. 8), where it was explained that Tropical Storm Paulette is moving toward the northwest near 6 mph (9 km/h) and should continue in that motion with a faster forward speed on Tuesday, then move west-northwestward on Wednesday through Friday.
    Though the storm is packing maximum sustained winds near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gust and further strengthening is forecast, it is not expected to impact the Leeward Islands.
    Forecasters predict a level of weakening between today and tomorrow.
    Meantime, all eyes are currently on Rene, which is traveling behind Paulette and is packing maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour.
    According to forecasters, the TS is expected to develop into a hurricane as it moves across the Atlantic.
    The Tropical Storm is currently dropping significant rainfall on the Cape Verde Islands, as it moves near 15 miles per hour.
    On the development of the tropical wave, the NHC’s Forecaster Zelinsky noted that forecast shows the emergence of the wave off the coast of Africa by today.
    Gradual development of the wave is expected as it hits the Atlantic where tropical depression is likely to form by the weekend. It currently has a high 70 percent chance of development. 


    This is the peak of the Atlantic Hurricane Season and the development of a large number of storms is predicted during this period.
