Another system swirling in the tropics could become the next Atlantic tropical storm, it would be named Isaias, and naming could happen as soon as late Wednesday or Thursday.
The disturbance is an area of low pressure located approximately 750 miles east of the Windward Islands, reported NBC Miami. The system is expected to organize in the next 24-48 hours.
Dubbed 92L, the system is moving west 15-20 mph, which suggest it will arrive in warm Caribbean waters by Wednesday afternoon.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said the system has a high probability of forming into a tropical depression or tropical storm in the next few days.
The intensity and how the storm will develop is still in question, though spaghetti models suggest if the storm strengthens, it could track near the Bahamas.
While track forecasts via computer models are preliminary – this is a weather disturbance to watch this week.
