Multiple Tropical Systems On The Move
National Hurricane Center Atlantic Basin
National Hurricane Center Pacific Basin

Not one but three tropical systems in the Atlantic Basin and seven systems in the Pacific including Tropical Storms, Kiko, Mario, and Lorena, which looks to strike the Baja of California later this weekend.

The storm of concern for us here in Maryland would be Tropical Depression Ten. Yes Hurricane Humberto continues to spin toward Bermuda and out to sea while Tropical Depression Imelda churns toward southeast Texas with flooding concerns. Neither of these storms look to impact Maryland but Tropical Depression Ten on the other-hand could throw us some moisture next week.

Tropical Depression Ten is about 1000+ miles east of the Leeward Islands with a west northwest movement at 10 mph. The storm is expected to strengthen in the coming days reaching hurricane status Saturday into Sunday somewhere near the Bahamas.

From there the question remains to if the system heads for the United States or out to sea. Stay tuned!!
