August 20, 2023 | 0 Comments

Today [Aug 20] is the “traditional start of the height of the Atlantic Hurricane season,” the Bermuda Weather Service noted, with the comment coming as two named storms swirl in the Atlantic, with both Emily and Franklin currently active.

The BWS said, “Today is the traditional start of the height of the Atlantic Hurricane season. The tropical Atlantic is busy! As of noon today, the National Hurricane Center was issuing advisories on Tropical Depression 6, expected to weaken and dissipate Monday night, and Tropical Storm Emily. Emily is expected to possibly intensify a bit today before starting a weaking trend on Monday as it tracks west-northwesterly and then northerly. Current forecast has Emily passing well east of Bermuda. Keep your eyes on the area in the Eastern Caribbean as it is close to being a tropical depression and expected to turn northerly later this week.

Following this post by the BWS, the NHC advised that another named storm has formed in the Atlantic, with Tropical Storm Franklin becoming the sixth named storm of the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season.
