Tropical Update: The tropics are heating up quickly with 2 areas of possible development. The next 2 names on the list are Claudette and Danny.

Area 1: An area of low pressure in the southern Gulf of Mexico continues to gather moisture as it attempts to intensify. As of Monday morning, it had a 20% chance of being named over the next 48 hours. Over a five-day stretch, that chance lifts to 70%. The developing low will slowly head northward over the next 3-4 days, impacting coastal Texas and Louisiana cities and townships by Friday. We may see some remnant moisture from this system down the line, but no major impacts are expected in Eastern NC.

Area 2: A tropical wave currently is currently located just offshore of the African coastline. Over the next 48 hours, it has a 10% chance of being named. Over a five-day stretch, that chance is at 20%.
