Media Advisory: Serious Tropical Threat Could Be Brewing for Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico
AccuWeather Global Weather Center – September 21, 2022 –  AccuWeather forecasters are looking ahead to the next tropical threat behind Hurricane Fiona, which pummeled the Turks and Caicos Tuesday morning as a Category 3 storm and poses a threat to Bermuda and parts of eastern Canada later this week, and are cautioning about new development in the Atlantic basin that could be a danger to the mainland United States late in the month.
“This is the most significant threat for the U.S. mainland we’ve had this hurricane season,” AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Jonathan Porter said.
“If the main brunt of the tropical rainstorm is able to avoid drifting over South America, it can evolve into a full-fledged tropical storm anytime through Friday while over the eastern Caribbean,” AccuWeather Lead Long-Range Meteorologist Paul Pastelok said. Even though initial organization and strengthening may be a bit slow with the system, it could begin to rapidly intensify as it reaches the central and western Caribbean from this weekend to early next week, Pastelok explained.
