There are two areas that could develop next week, but there is nothing heading our way right now.

NEW ORLEANS — We’re watching two areas for potential development in the tropics, but we’re not expecting either to be a threat to Louisiana.

One area of non-tropical low pressure is way out east of Bermuda. It has a high chance of developing into Tropical Storm Epsilon this weekend. Models keep this one meandering out over the Atlantic.

The second area is the western Caribbean Sea where a broad low pressure area could form soon. It has a low chance of development in the next five days, but it may eventually become Tropical Storm Zeta. This one may eventually head north or northeast toward Cuba, Florida, the Bahamas and/or the western Atlantic. We’re not expecting any impacts from it in Louisiana.

If it becomes Zeta, that would tie the 2005 hurricane season for most named storms.

We’re now about six weeks until the official end of the season. With more cold fronts on the way, we’re looking pretty good at this point, but of course the season is not over yet. We’ll keep watching everything.
