The Atlantic hurricane season statistically peaks on September 10, and today seven systems are actively being watched.
Two of them are named Paulette and Rene, and both are currently located over the central Atlantic Ocean.
The other five are what we refer to as tropical waves or disturbances.
Storm systems that aren’t yet tropical storms but have the potential to become storms within the next five days.
Three of these systems are near the US.
The first, a low pressure located just off the coast of North Carolina, is producing a few showers and thunderstorms.
The second system is currently in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. It is a very weak cluster of storms right now but may
potentially strengthen as it moves into the western Gulf over the next several days.
