Wanda now a Tropical Storm

The Weather Authority

As of 6 pm Monday, Wanda is now a Tropical Storm. Wanda currently has maximum sustained winds of 45 mph and is moving towards the east-northeast at 7 mph. It is not expected to impact land as it travels further out to sea.

Just like that, we have come to the end of this hurricane season’s name list. What this means is that if another storm were to form, we start at the beginning of the supplementary list of names. The National Hurricane Center is currently monitoring a system off the west coast of Africa, below you will find the latest information regarding it.

Here is the latest Tropical Update from the National Hurricane Center:

For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

  1. A small low pressure system located several hundred miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands has become better defined today. However, associated shower activity is limited, and the system is expected to continue moving northwestward into a region less conductive upper-level winds, which will limit the chance for tropical cyclone formation.
    • Formation chance through 48 hours…Low (10%)
    • Formation chance through 5 days…Low (10%)
  2. Another low pressure system has formed over the southwestern Caribbean Sea just north of westher Panama. This system is expected to move westward into Central America by early Tuesday, which will inhibit tropical cyclone development. However, this disturbance, will still produce heavy rainfall across southern Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama through Tuesday, which could result in flooding and mudslides. By Wednesday, the system will move into the far eastern portion of the Eastern Pacific basin.
    • Formation chance through 48 hours…Low (10%)
    • Formation chance five days…Low (10%)
