Tropical Depression 16 is developing in the Caribbean Sea and is expected to become Tropical Storm Nate on Thursday.
Tropical Storm Maria is continuing to affect the Outer Banks this evening with tropical storm force winds and elevated storm surge.
Hurricane Maria is continuing to move northwestward, but a turn tot he north is expected soon.
Two hurricanes are currently in the Atlantic Basin, and Hurricane Jose is impacting the Carolina coastline with dangerous rip currents.
In your tropical update, I am watching Tropical Storm Jose as the latest tracks move the storm closer to the east coast. I am also watching two other systems that may strengthen into the tropical systems over the weekend.
