Mobile, Ala. (WKRG) – As of 4 PM Sunday afternoon, Tropical Depression 17 has now strengthened into Tropical Storm Rose in the eastern Atlantic. Rose is expected to maintain tropical storm strength as it moves NNW further into the Atlantic. This is not a current threat to the United States.
Tropical Depression 16 became Tropical Storm Peter Sunday morning. It is also expected to remain a tropical storm before curving north further into the Atlantic. This is also currently not a threat to the United States.
We are also watching two other areas in the Atlantic Basin. One has a low chance for development while the other has a medium chance. Right now, these are not imminent threats, but we will continue to watch!
