An area of disturbed weather out over the Atlantic Ocean may add yet another record to a busy 2020 hurricane season.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami said Monday that showers associated with a broad area of low pressure about 1,000 miles east of the Windward Islands is entering an area favorable for development.

“This is our next storm system that we think is going to get a name, probably tomorrow, Isaias is going to be the “I’-named storm,” Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean said on “Fox & Friends.”

“We’re going to have to watch the development of this system because it’s going to move into the Caribbean.”

According to the NHC, the system has become a little less organized since Sunday night but it is still in an area where things are favorable for development.

Over the next day or two, there’s an 80 percent chance of a tropical depression or tropical storm forming.
In a five-day stretch, that formation chance gets bumped up to 90 percent.

The system is moving westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph and could begin to affect portions of the Lesser Antilles on Wednesday or Wednesday night.

“Interests on those islands should continue to monitor the progress of this system,” the NHC said.

After entering the Caribbean, all eyes are on computer models for where the system would go next.
