The formation chance through the next 48 hours is low, near 20 percent.
In May, NOAA released research by forecasters with its Climate Prediction Centre, saying an “above-normal 2020 Atlantic hurricane season is expected”.
The prediction read: “The outlook predicts a 60 percent chance of an above-normal season, a 30 percent chance of a near-normal season and only a 10 percent chance of a below-normal season.”
The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30.
The centre is forecasting a likely range of 13 to 19 named storms, of which six to 10 could become hurricanes.
