RICHMOND, Va. – A disturbance the National Hurricane Center has been monitoring the past couple of days organized enough this morning to warrant it being given a number, but not a name.
Subtropical Depression Seven shows a curved band of convection to the north and west of the low pressure center, as you can see on the satellite image here:
The Hurricane Center requested an Air Force Hurricane Hunter aircraft to fly through the depression Friday afternoon to gather more information about the system’s strength and structure.
Data is consistent with keeping this system well away from the East Coast, but it does look like it will bring rain, gusty winds and rough surf to Bermuda this weekend.
If it is able to strengthen enough to a Storm, the next name on our list is “Fay.”
There is another disturbance southeast of Seven that will be monitored over the next week as it tracks west-northwest.
