And then there were six.

There are now six days remaining in the record-breaking 2020 hurricane season, and  the National Hurricane Center is tracking an area of low pressure several hundred miles east of Florida.

Here's the latest update from the NHC as of 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 24:

Scary trend:Major hurricanes in October and November — why is it happening?

A look at what's out in the tropics as of 7 p.m. ET Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2020.

What's out there and where is it? 

1. Disturbance 1 is a non-tropical area of low pressure associated with a cold front located a couple of hundred miles south-southeast of Bermuda.

How likely is it to strengthen?

1.  Disturbance 1 is producing gale-force winds, along with showers and thunderstorms, to the east of its center.

By Thursday, the system could become separated from the front, allowing it to possibly develop some subtropical characteristics later this week while it meanders over the central Atlantic.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours: 10%
  • Formation chance through 5 days: 30%

Who is likely to be impacted?

It's still too early at this time to determine whether Florida will feel any impact from the system.

Forecasters advise all residents to stay informed and be prepared during this very active hurricane season.
