Forecast for Tropical Depression 6
Tropical Depression 6 is forecast to strengthen into Tropical Storm Fiona tomorrow morning. It is expected to track northwest over the next five days gradually strengthening as it does.
Presently the National Hurricane Center is forecasting soon to be Fiona to reach peak intensity on Sunday with winds of 60mph. However, it could potential become stronger. Fiona will not impact the United States or any land areas for that matter.
A weakness in the subtropical ridge across the Atlantic will allow Fiona to move harmlessly out to sea.
Atlantic Entering Active Period
Tropical Depression 6 (Fiona) is not expected to impact the United States or any land areas. However, the development of this system is important as it could potentially signal that the Atlantic hurricane season is about to enter an active period over the next two months.
Several strong tropical waves are expected to emerge off of Africa over the next 7 – 10 days and there are signs that 2 – 3 of them could attempt to develop. Although, it remains to be seen if these waves will develop, or if they would make it far enough west to impact the United States.
We will have another update out tomorrow.
