Tropical Storm Alberto is just the first of three areas of tropical trouble being monitored in the Atlantic Basin this week.While Alberto in the western 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.HOW TO WATCH FOX WEATHERAn area of showers and thunderstorms is currently located a few hundred miles east of the Bahamas, associated with a surface trough of low pressure.According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), environmental conditions are marginally conducive for some gradual 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 Friday.The NHC has labeled the system as Invest 92L, which is a designation that is given to an area of interest ahead of more analysis.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 by the end of the workweek.Another broad area of low pressure is forecast to develop this weekend over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico in the same general area where Tropical Storm Alberto formed.The NHC said that environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for gradual development of this system through early next week while it moves slowly west-northwestward or northwestward.It currently has a medium chance of development in the next seven days, but those odds could increase once the broad area of low pressure develops and computer forecast models have an actual system to monitor.
