We’re more than halfway through the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season and forecasters are tracking two tropical waves – one of which could become our next tropical depression.

The first tropical wave is located about midway between the west coast of Africa and the Windward Islands. The National Hurricane Center says further development of this system is possible and a tropical depression could form over the next several days.

As of Tuesday morning, the system has a 40-percent chance of development over the next five days. If the system does become a named storm, it would be Fiona. 


The second tropical wave is approaching the Cabo Verde Islands. Forecasters say development of this system should be slow to occur while it moves westward or west-northwestward across the eastern tropical Atlantic through the end of the week. Development chances are low at 20-percent.

So far this season, there have been five named storms: Alex, Bonnie, Colin, Danielle, and Earl. Danielle and Earl were the first hurricanes to form this season, but stayed out in the Atlantic away from land. 

Hurricane season ends Nov. 30.
