Next up? Soon-to-be Emily

The area in the red circle is what will soon be Tropical Storm Emily.

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a large low pressure system located about 900 miles east of the Lesser Antilles continue to show signs of organization, according to a 2 p.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center.

Environmental conditions appear favorable for a tropical depression to form over the next couple of days. It would be called Emily.

This system has a high chance (80 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours as it moves west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph.

Stay tuned. Another update will be out around 8 p.m.
