In the Atlantic, we have tropical storm Gonzalo which is expected to strengthen into a hurricane tomorrow. This is the 7th Named storm of the season already.
Also in the Gulf of Mexico we have an area of low pressure that has a 90% chance of being a tropical depression maybe even a tropical storm. However it has limited time before it reaches land.
In the Eastern Pacific we have the first Hurricane of the 2020 season with Douglas. This system looks set to have direct impacts on Hawaii over the weekend one to watch for sure.
