2 tropical storms, 2 other systems being watched in Atlantic

Tropical storms Peter and Rose expected to weaken this week

Forecasters have their hands full in the Atlantic this week with two tropical storms and two other systems being watched, including the leftovers of a tropical storm.

Tropical Storm Peter and Tropical Storm Rose formed over the weekend. Forecasters are also still watching the remnants of Tropical Storm Odette for possible reformation. Invest 98L near Africa is also being monitored.

Here’s a closer look at each system.

Tropical Storm Peter

Peter is situated about 245 miles east-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands, as of the 5 a.m. Atlantic advisory. It has winds of 50 mph and is moving west-north-west at 14 mph.

The forecast calls for Peter to stay out to sea this week before weakening to a tropical depression and turning northeast toward Bermuda.

Parts of the northern Leeward Islands could get up to 3 inches of rain from the storm. Rough seas and rip currents are possible from the Leeward Islands to the Bahamas this week.

Tropical Storm Rose

Rose is located about 550 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands, as of the 5 a.m. Atlantic advisory. It has winds of 40 mph and is moving northwest at 15 mph.

The storm is forecast to remain in the open waters of the Atlantic this week and eventually weaken to a tropical depression by the weekend.

No impacts to land are expected.

Invest 98L

This system is located off the western coast of Africa, southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands. Forecasters have given it a 70% chance of development within five days.

Remnants of Odette

The leftovers of Tropical Storm Odette could reorganize this week as a sub-tropical system. It has a 30% chance of development within five days.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs through Nov. 30.
