Odds for development decrease near Florida East Coast
The National Hurricane Center has lowered the chances of development from 60 percent to 50 percent for an area of low pressure off the Space Coast.
Earlier this evening the Hurricane Hunters flew into the system to investigate how well organized it had become. They found that, while it had a well-defined center of circulation, the storm development was still far removed from the center.
Over the next few days, this system will continue to battle a large expanse of dry air in the atmosphere. This will create a hostile environment for any type of development which is why the odds were lowered from 60 percent to 50 percent.
The next name on the 2021 Atlantic list is Fred. There are no other areas of interest at this time, largely due to high concentrations of Saharan dust moving through the Atlantic helping to limit tropical development.
