Tropical Storm Maria forms in the Atlantic

By on September 7th, 2011

Tropical Storm Maria formed in the central Atlantic today and has winds of 50 miles per hour. Conditions aren’t ideal for Maria for strengthen much over the next 48 hours, but current data suggests that Maria could become a weak hurricane over the weekend and pass just north of Puerto Rico. Forecasters aren’t confident yet on whether or not there will be impact from this storm in the United States. Meanwhile, an area of disturbed weather has formed in the southern Gulf of Mexico and has a high chance of developing into the 14th named storm of the season by Friday. There is also a great deal of uncertainty on where this potential tropical system would move, especially since the storm is forecast to remain nearly nearly stationary for the next 48 hours.
