August is continuing to throw up curveballs, record heat in California, record rainfall in Asia and Indo Pakistan and now something very very odd and rare indeed. Two tropical storms could hit the US on the same day. The last time that happened was during the great depression, sound familiar? Hmmm.
Tropical storm 14 which will be named Marco as it strengthens is likely to impact Louisiana and Texas early morning on Tuesday. This system is gradually becoming better organized, and a tropical depression is likely to form in a couple of days when the system reaches the northwestern Caribbean Sea.
Tropical storm 13, likely to be named Laura could impact Florida at the same time. The details of the long-range track and intensity forecasts are more uncertain than usual because the system could move over the Greater Antilles this weekend. However, this system could bring some storm surge, rainfall and wind impacts to Florida later this weekend.Hurricanes and Cyclones 2020
