NHC sees no tropical cyclones in Atlantic basin

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Monday it did not expect tropical cyclone formation over the next 48 hours.

The Miami-based agency said it was monitoring tropical waves in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, but right now did not expect further development of any of the systems.



Forecaster AccuWeather agreed, noting there were no organized tropical cyclones in the Atlantic basin. The tropical wave over the Yucatan Peninsula moving northwest was expected to meet up with a stationary front across the northern Gulf of Mexico and Florida, but it was unlikely to organize further, the forecaster added.

The six-month hurricane season officially runs until the end of November.
