New York (Knewz) — A tropical system is brewing in the Atlantic a week after Hurricane Ian devastated Florida and other parts of the Southeast.

CIRA, a research department at Colorado State University, shared satellite video of Tropical Storm “91L” on Twitter that shows the storm’s formation.

According to The Weather Channel, 91L, a tropical system in the southern Caribbean, is likely to become the next named Atlantic storm. The storm is already bringing the threat of heavy rain to northern Venezuela and the ABC Islands.

The National Weather Service advises people in Central America from Belize to Nicaragua to monitor the storm closely.

A tropical system in the southern Caribbean is expected to pose a threat to parts of Central America this weekend into early next week, according to The Weather Channel.

This latest storm, 91L, is not expected to pose a threat to the United States.

According to The Weather Channel, 91L has not developed into a tropical depression yet, ut it is expected to go over warm water that will help it turn into a bigger, stronger storm.

“Therefore, we expect the disturbance to become a tropical depression or storm by late this week or the weekend,” the NWS stated.

Hurricane season, which is often very active in September and October, ends Nov. 30.
