We all breathed a huge sigh of relief after Hurricane Dorian passed, however, we still need to keep an eye out on the oceans. There are three named storms out there currently.

Hurricane Humberto is approaching Bermuda this morning as a Category 3 Hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 115 mph.

Imelda formed very quickly and has already made landfall. The storm is expected to stall out today over the city of Houston, bringing threats of flash floods across south Texas today and tomorrow.

Tropical Storm Jerry is new this morning, with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph, and is approaching the Lesser Antilles. The future track of Jerry depends on its intensity, and we will need to watch it closely, remembering to focus on the cone and not the forecast center point.

Aside from these named storms, two other tropical waves are expected to develop this weekend.
