FLORIDA, USA — Tropical Storm Humberto is forecast to become a hurricane Sunday night.
The storm is moving with winds of 70 mph about 170 mi east-northeast of Cape Canaveral, Florida moving North at 6 mph as of 5 p.m. Sept. 15.
Humberto will turn north and then northeast due to a weakness in the subtropical ridge and then will be guided northeast due to an approaching trough of low pressure, but not before briefly becoming a major storm.
A sharp turn the northeast is forecast to occur Monday. The storm is then forecast to further strengthen and could briefly become a major storm Wednesday. Weakening is expected as an upper-level trough of low pressure sweeps it out to sea by Thursday.
