Hurricane Center focused on 4 potential systems as Nana, Omar fade away


Tropical Depression Omar is expected to fade into a remnant low at any moment, the National Hurricane Center said in its 11 a.m. update. After it fades, the tropics will remain a busy place as the NHC tracks four systems with odds of development in the Atlantic.

TD Omar was located about 450 miles east-northeast of Bermuda with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph moving east near 6 mph, and likely to become a remnant low Friday. The storm is not believed to make any threat of landfall.

Meanwhile, multiple systems are popping up on the NHC’s radar, as of the 8 a.m. update.

First, the NHC is eyeing a tropical wave with a vast area of disorganized thunderstorms and has a high chance of development near the Cabo Verde Islands. The system is moving west-northwest at 15 mph. Slow development is expected as the system could become a tropical depression or tropical storm sometime next week. The NHC gives it a 20% chance to form in the next two days and 70% chance in the next five days.

Second, an area of low pressure closer to the Caribbean is seeing gradual development. The low is several hundred miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. The NHC gives it a 20% chance to form in the next two days and 40% chance in the next five days.

Next, the NHC is monitoring another tropical wave hanging over Africa, which should push out over sea sometime over the weekend. The system has a 50% chance of formation in the next five days.

Finally, in the north-central Atlantic, the NHC is observing a non-tropical area of low pressure about 600 miles south of Cape Race Newfoundland expected to move north-northeastward at 15 mph. Forecasters said some slight subtropical or tropical development could occur before it reaches cooler waters Friday night. The NHC gives it a 20% chance of formation in the next two days.

The remaining names for the 2020 season are Paulette, Rene, Sally, Teddy, Vicky, and Wilfred.

If the total amount of 2020 storms exceeds the designated name list; which it is expected to, hurricane specialists will begin using letters from the Greek alphabet to name storm; a tactic meteorologists have only had to use once before in 2005, which had a total of 28 named storms.
