Tropical Storm Epsilon forms in Atlantic

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Tropical Storm Epsilon has formed in the Atlantic. Epsilon currently has wind speeds of 40 mph. Epsilon is expected to strengthen to a Category 1 hurricane mid-week as it moves northwest towards Bermuda. It looks like it will take a more northerly turn as we head into next weekend. It is expected to stay east of the United States right now.

There is another wave in the western Caribbean with a 20% chance of development over the next 5 days.

There are no immediate threats in the Gulf.

Hurricane season officially ends on the last day of November, but Texans can usually breathe a sigh of relief by mid-October once the jet stream shifts and fall cold fronts start pushing through the Lone Star State. We are almost there!

You'll still want to continue to stay prepared and have your hurricane preparedness plan in place, just in case.
