There were growing concerns today that another storm was brewing in the Atlantic and heading towards Florida, but it doesn’t look like it will be a threat to land at this time.

The tropical disturbance is about 700 miles east of the Windward Islands and has become better define. However, the wave may soon fizzle in the coming days.

“Upper-level winds have become less conducive for development. Some slow development of this system may occur during the next day or so while it moves generally west-northwestward near 15 mph. After that time, the upper-level winds will become even less conducive for development,” according to the National Hurricane Center.

There’s only a 30 percent chance of formation.

The peak of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season was about a month ago, and since then, the tropics have brewed a couple of hurricanes that hit Louisiana.

Overall, it’s been an active season, but the north’s high shear in the Atlantic is disrupting any storms near Florida.

Hurricane season is from June 1st through November 30th.
