Tropical Storm Fernand develops in the western Gulf

The system is the only one projected to move closer to Florida as it moves westward to west-northwestward, with chances of tropical system formation placed at 60 percent in the next five days.

As of the 2 p.m. update, Dorian was still about 100 miles east of West Palm Beach but had started moving northwest at 5 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Potential Tropical Cyclone is expected to form later today in Mexico as Hurricane Dorian continues to ferociously batter the Bahamas. As of 10am, the system was located at 23.6 North 94.9 West, or about 185 miles east of La Pesca, Mexico.

Tropical Storm Fernand was churning away off the Mexican coast in the Gulf of Mexico, moving west close to the Texas shoreline with 40 miles per hour winds.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for part of the northeastern coast of Mexico from La Pesca to Barra El Mesquital.

The National Hurricane Center began tracking a tropical depression that was forming off the coast of Mexico over the weekend as Dorian ripped through the Bahamas. Besides the wind and surge, heavy rainfall could cause flooding.

Tropical Depression Seven could make landfall in Mexico on Wednesday. Chances of tropical system formation are placed at 30 percent in the next 48 hours and 50 percent over the next five days.

In the mid-Atlantic, a trough of low pressure located several hundred miles south-southeast of Bermuda, is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms, the NHC said.

Environmental conditions appear conducive for development of this system, and a tropical depression could form next week while the system moves across the Atlantic Ocean.

The forecast keeps the storm well over the Atlantic over the next five days.
