Potential Tropical Cyclone One is just the first of three areas of tropical trouble being monitored in the Atlantic Ocean this week.While Potential Tropical Cyclone One in the southern Gulf of Mexico poses the most immediate threat to the U.S., the other two systems also have the potential to impact the country. Here’s a closer look at the two other areas of interest in the tropics.An area of clouds and thunderstorms is currently located several hundred miles east of the Bahamas, associated with a surface trough and an upper-level area of low pressure.According to the NHC, environmental conditions could be conducive for some development of this system during the next few days while it moves westward or west-northwestward. It is expected to approach the southeastern U.S. coast on Thursday or Friday.HURRICANE EXPERTS PUSH FORWARD WITH AGGRESSIVE FORECAST DESPITE SLOW START TO SEASONThe chance of development in the next seven days is currently low. However, regardless of development, the FOX Forecast Center said the massive ridge of high pressure fueling a heat wave over the eastern U.S. will help steer this system toward the coast of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina or North Carolina.Hurricane Hunters are tentatively scheduled to investigate this system on Tuesday, if necessary.The same area where Potential Tropical Cyclone One developed is being monitored for more development early next week. It has a low chance of development, and it’s too early to give specifics on this system.
