Brewing Tropical Storm Gert to stir rough surf along US East Coast

1 of 2 systems in the Atlantic could bring tropical trouble to SC coast, meteorologists say

1 of 2 systems in the Atlantic could bring tropical trouble to SC coast, meteorologists say

A low pressure area located about 150 miles northeast of the Turks and Caicos Islands Saturday morning has become a little better defined and the shower activity has increased somewhat since Friday.

Meteorologists at the National Hurricane Center have their eyes on two disturbances in the Atlantic, one of which is situated just off the east coast of Florida.

Somewhat favorable conditions should allow the system to strengthen as it moves northward.

If it can overcome the dry air that has plagued most systems so far this season, it may have an opportunity to develop as it crosses the open waters of the eastern and central Atlantic this week. With wind shear, which would normally smother a hurricane, likely to weaken, forecasters gave the storm a 50 percent chance of forming over the next five days. If wind speed grows to 39 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center it would become Tropical Storm Gert.

Forecast models put the storm on a northwest path toward the US but then curve it away from the USA without reaching the coast. In about 4 days it will become an extra tropical storm in the north Atlantic.

The next name on the list is Gert.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30.
