What was Tropical Depression Eleven meandering over the Central Atlantic Ocean has become Tropical Storm Jose, adding to a busy basin expected to remain active as the season's peak approaches around Sept. 10.
Here's a closer look at each of the tropical systems swirling out in the Atlantic:
Tropical Storm Jose
Tropical Storm Jose is located about 750 miles east of Bermuda with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph, the National Hurricane Center said. Little strength change is forecasted over the next day or so, with the small system forecast to be absorbed by Hurricane Franklin by the weekend.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the center. There is no threat to land.
Invest 94L swirls near Africa with high chance of development
A tropical wave near the west coast of Africa is still triggering scattered showers and thunderstorms and has since been designated Invest 94L. Invest is a term used by the NHC to indicate an area being closely monitored for the potential of tropical development.
According to the NHC, it is possible that a tropical depression may develop later this week as the system moves towards the west-northwest or northwest direction across the eastern tropical Atlantic. The odds of formation into a tropical depression in the next 2 days are at 80%. If the storm eventually develops into a tropical storm, it will take the name Katia.
Former Tropical Storm Gert mulls brief comeback
The NHC has also returned to keep an eye on the remnants of what used to be Tropical Storm Gert, still meandering far out in the middle of the Atlantic.
It's located in between Hurricane Franklin and Tropical Depression Eleven, but still only has a 30% chance of redevelopment as atmospheric conditions are not primed for additional strengthening.
Hurricane Franklin and Post-Tropical Cyclone Idalia still ongoing
According to the NHC, Franklin is causing dangerous surf and rip currents along the Eastern Seaboard, while Idalia made a historic landfall in Florida's Big Bend region on Wednesday and has caused catastrophic damage and storm surge as it races inland into Georgia and South Carolina.
