FIRST ALERT TROPICS UPDATE: The National Hurricane Center is continuing to watch Hurricane Fiona and Tropical Storm Gaston. Both storms are churning in the Atlantic Ocean with neither storm impacting mainland United States.

The NHC is also watching three areas of interest for potential tropical development. Two of the three areas way out in the Atlantic Ocean, with no immediate concern for the mainland United States.

The third disturbance is a wave of energy that is forecasted to develop into something tropical, while in the Caribbean Sea over the next two days. Forecast models are trending towards this becoming a powerful storm. Its eventual track is unclear but it could threaten the Eastern Gulf Coast states.
