DAILY TROPICAL UPDATE:The deep tropics remain quiet in the Atlantic

Travis Herzog has an update on the tropics.

No significant tropical development is expected over the Gulf or Caribbean this week. In the north Atlantic, a non-tropical area of low pressure has a 40% chance of developing into a named storm over the next 5 days.
So far this season four named storms have formed in the Atlantic. Travis says historically over 90% of all hurricane activity occurs after August 10th.

Hurricane season ends the last day of November, but it typically winds down for Texas by mid-October as fall fronts cool off the Gulf and steer storms toward Florida and the Atlantic Ocean.
