An average hurricane season produces 12 named storms, with six hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.

Tropical moisture will feed the development of showers and storms over parts of the Northern Plains, Lower Great Lakes, the mid-Atlantic and the OH and Tennessee valleys, as well as the Gulf Coast, on Saturday and Sunday.

So far this season has produced two hurricanes, Beryl and Chris; two tropical storms, Debby and Ernesto; and one subtropical storm, Alberto.

"We get tropical waves that move through quite frequently", said meteorologist Rodney Wynn. However, the weather service doesnt believe the tropical wave poses a threat to the region because its so disorganized. The total rainfall for the year is at 33.23 inches — nearly half of that rain coming in August.

- As expected, Tropical Depression 6 has formed in the Atlantic. That system would then move west into the Gulf of Mexico, but it would have little to no direct impact on the weather up here in North Alabama and Tennessee.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for the islands, where the National Hurricane Center warns of four to eight inches of rain, life-threatening flash floods and tropical-storm-force winds for the southern islands. Afternoon storm chances will increase midday across inland areas. This system is of greater concern to either the Bahamas this weekend or the Gulf of Mexico during the first half of next week as conditions in there are more favorable for tropical storm development.

"Over the next 14 days, we do not normally see the weird tropical cyclones as strong as #Ophelia form in this part of the Northern Atlantic with a central pressure of 943mb, as the same of the equivalent in Category 4 hurricanes". But shear is forecast to decrease in the weeks ahead, leaving open the possibility for more powerful storms.
