Tropical Storms Paulette and Rene on their Way of the Atlantic

There are currently two tropical storms making their way over the Atlantic towards America. Paulette and Rene:

Their tracks for the next three days, according to NOAA are as follows:

Currently it seems that both will move in a North-Westerly direction stay out on the Atlantic Ocean and not make landfall in America, but we’ll know that in a few days.

Tropical Disturbance 1 – Keep an Eye on this One

Currently there are three disturbances in the Atlantic. One of which has an 80% chance of tropical cyclone formation in the next 48%

Certainly worthwhile to keep an eye on this one. It’s a quite large area and it is expected to form a tropical depression (TD) in the next day or two.

The satellite view as of Sep. 6, 07:40 UTC looks like this:

Two Tropical Storms on Way to Louisiana Coast

There are two tropical cyclone systems that are moving towards the Louisiana coast. Both at the time of writing have tropical storm (TS) strength.

Laura has its center located above Haiti. It is farther away from Louisiana and thus its future track is still somewhat uncertain, but it is currently forecasted to move to the Louisiana coast and make landfall somewhere West of New Orleans on Wednesday evening. However, future forecasts for Laura might still change significantly. Laura is expected to have Hurricane (H) strength before making landfall.
Marco has its center located North of the Yucatan peninsula and is closer tow Louisiana. The track is somewhat less uncertain and NOAA’s National Hurricane forecasts have it making landfall close to New Orleans on the morning of Monday, Aug. 24. Marco is expected to have Hurricane (H) strength when it approaches the shore.

People and authorities in the area certainly might want to keep an eye or two on both tropical storms and make the necessary preparations.

As of Aug. 23, 00:00 UTC the following amount of rainfall is predicted over a 24 hour period:
