Things are still very busy in the Atlantic as we head through the weekend. We have newly designated TS Kirk way out in the deep tropics and we will need to keep an eye on this system over the coming days as it travels westward towards the Lesser Antilles.
Meanwhile, invest area 98L which is situated to the south of Bermuda is likely to try and push west before turning northward near the NC Outer Banks next week. The pattern is just not very favorable for much to come from this system which, by the way, is not the remnant low pressure area associated with what was once hurricane Florence. We will certainly keep a close eye on the situation but overall, I think it will be no more than a pesky coastal storm for early next week and that’s about all.
Check out my latest video discussion for more in-depth analysis of all the goings on in the tropics.
