Orlando, Fla. – How many systems can Tropics do at the National Hurricane Center at once? How about six?
On Monday, the hurricane center is issuing advisories on Hurricane Paulette located near Bermuda; Hurricane Sally, centered in the north-central Gulf of Mexico; Tropical Storm Teddy is located on the east-central tropical Atlantic; Tropical Storm Vicky Away From Africa; And two waves, one near Mexico and the other near the coast of Africa. The storm center was monitoring the seven systems until René disbanded over the central Atlantic on Monday afternoon. The final advice for that system was issued at 5 pm
No system poses a significant threat to Central Florida in the coming days. Most of them either tilt northward before reaching the United States or move away from the Sunshine State in the Gulf of Mexico.

The closest is Sally from Florida, which was upgraded to a Category 1 hurricane shortly after noon on Monday. The National Hurricane Center’s latest advisory revealed that Sally’s wind speed had jumped to 100 mph, making it a Category 2 hurricane on the Kefir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Sally is moving west-northwest at 6 mph in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
A storm warning has been issued for Morgan City, Louisiana, Navarre, Florida. According to the latest consultation, Lake Pontcharten and Maurappas, including metropolitan New Orleans, are also subject to storm warnings. Sally is forecasting to make landfall as a storm somewhere in Tuesday’s hurricane warning area, but will bring more rain to Central Florida before that.
The latest advisor to the National Hurricane said, “On the forecast track, Sally’s center will go near the coast of southeastern Louisiana tonight and Tuesday and make landfall in the area with the storm warning.”
Meanwhile, Hurricane Paulette was moving north-northeast from Bermuda as a Category 2 hurricane Monday afternoon at 15 mph, packing 105-mph winds according to the hurricane center.
The next name would be Hurricane Wilfred. After that, NHC will use the Greek alphabet for any named storm.
