Forecasters keeping close eye on key areas of Atlantic basin as peak of hurricane season nears
The lull in tropical activity across the Atlantic Ocean following Isaias should not have people letting their guard down as experts warn that the worst of 2020's active tropical season may still be to come. In fact, the basin may spring to life once again as early as this week.The 2020 season has already spawned nine named storms and a tropical depression. Two of the named storms, Hanna and Isaias, went on to become hurricanes. On average, it takes until Aug. 10 for the season's first hurricane to form in the Atlantic. Storms from Edouard through Isaias, as well as Cristobal, set early formation records for their respective letter.Only three of the named storms -- Dolly, Edouard and Gonzalo \-- have not impacted the United States.CLICK HERE FOR THE FREE ACCUWEATHER APP"Despite the current lull in tropical activity over the Atlantic, there is a significant chance that the 'j' and 'k' storms may also set early formation records, both of which were set during the infamous 2005 season. Jose formed on Aug. 22, and the blockbuster Katrina formed on Aug. 24," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.This season's "j" and "k" storms are Josephine and Kyle.
