Tropical development possible in the Gulf of Mexico ahead of the weekend

The United States may get hit by two to four major hurricanes before the end of the 2019 hurricane season.

The disturbance, which could become Tropical Storm Nestor, had maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 kmh) and was located about 600 miles (965 kilometers) southwest of the mouth of the Mississippi River. It is not expected to strengthen into a hurricane.

The NHC gives the storm a 90 percent chance of forming into a tropical storm over the next 48 hours. Potential Tropical Cyclone Sixteen is in the west-central Gulf of Mexico.

A tropical storm warning is in effect from the mississippi/alabama border to the ochlockonee river, Florida.

If this were to become the next named storm of the season, it would be called Nestor.

Tropical storm watches have been issued from Ochlockonee River, Florida to Yankeetown, Florida.
