While the Gulf Coast continues to deal with the devastating impacts of Harvey, emergency managers in the United States may have another tropical threat to monitor.
Far across the Atlantic, just west of the Cabo Verde Islands, an area of thunderstorms is already showing signs of significant organization.
“There has been an increase in thunderstorm activity with this tropical disturbance, a sign that a tropical depression or tropical storm may soon follow,” said AccuWeather Meteorologist Brian Thompson.
Between the Caribbean and mainland U.S., and this system – dubbed Invest 93L – there is little to stop it from undergoing strengthening.
While 93L certainly could form into a powerful and destructive storm as it barrels towards the Americas, it will take about a week for the system to make its trek westward across the Atlantic Ocean.
