Tropical Storms are developing in the Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. Visit nationalweatherservice.gov/advocate to learn more how you can prepare for these storms as they develop. There is a high risk of severe weather, including tropical storms, across the southeast US today and tomorrow.
An area of low pressure located several hundred miles west of the lower Florida peninsula is expected to develop into a tropical storm late this weekend or early next week. Tropical Storm Warnings have been issued for portions of the Bahamas; Tropical Storm Watches remain in effect for portions of hispaniola and the southeastern coast of the United States.
Tropical storms are a major costal threat to the United States, and there is little room for error when it comes to weather forecasts. They are low-pressure systems that form in the tropics (between 20 degrees and the equator). Hurricanes, typhoons and tropical storms are the same thing. They all mean a powerful storm in the tropics, which often becomes a hurricane when it reaches the end of its life cycle. These are tropical storms that form in the tropics, generally between 10° and 20° of latitude (roughly 30° to 60° north or south of the equator)
What are the Causes of Tropical Storms?
Tropical storms are caused by an increase in temperatures of the surface ocean water.The warm water and humidity beneath these storms create the powerful winds that can cause damage on land. Tropical Storms are also called hurricanes or typhoons, depending on where they occur. Tropical storms are intense hurricanes that have a maximum wind speed of 74 mph or less. They are most common in the western hemisphere, particularly near the equator. They are rotating wind patterns that form over warm bodies of water and typically develop when atmospheric conditions like high humidity and warm surface temperatures allow them to. Some of the most destructive storms in the world can form in the tropics. Tropical storms, also called tropical cyclones and typhoons, are rotating storms that produce heavy rain and strong winds at the center.
