Forecasters warned Thursday that a developing tropical system could turn into a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico by the middle of next week.

“This is the biggest threat to the United States we’ve seen this hurricane season,” said Jonathan Porter, AccuWeather’s chief meteorologist.

The system, now known as Invest 98L, is located near the northeastern coast of South America in the eastern Caribbean on Thursday.

An “investment” is an area that the National Hurricane Center is monitoring closely with advanced computer models and other resources, including Hurricane Hunters, for potential development, according to Weather.com.

The forecast path of a tropical wave shows that it will become a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico by the middle of next week.

Tropical Storm in the Caribbean

Most computer models expect the system to be a tropical storm by the end of the week in the Caribbean. Models then show the system strengthening and turning into a hurricane by early next week. If it becomes a named storm, it will be called Hermine.

According to Weather.com, the majority of computer forecast models will curl the system — possibly with hurricane force — northward in the Gulf of Mexico about the middle of next week.

Hurricane in the Gulf?

Meteorologist Ryan Mao tweeted on Wednesday that if the computer model of the Global Forecasting System is correct, “This is what we’re dealing with: a major hurricane in the eastern Gulf of Mexico with impacts on the Florida Panhandle. But, all interests along the Gulf Coast from Houston to Key West have to watch for the next few days when we’ll know more.” “.

It does not appear that this system will pose a threat to areas in the northeastern Caribbean, including Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, which have been hard hit by Hurricane Fiona over the past few days, according to AccuWeather.

In addition to Fiona, which will graze over Bermuda and then head to eastern Canada this week, meteorologists have also been monitoring Tropical Storm Gaston in the Atlantic. The National Hurricane Center said Gaston could bring strong winds and high surf to the Azores later this week.
