ORLANDO, Fla. — Tropical Depression Omar is still hanging on to its strength Saturday, but it’s expected to soon fade into a remnant low. After it dissipates, the tropics will remain a busy place as the National Hurricane Center tracks three systems with odds of development in the Atlantic.
Tropical Depression Omar was located about 550 miles northeast of Bermuda with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph moving east at 10 mph. Omar is likely to become a remnant low by early Sunday morning, and dissipate by early Monday, the NHC said at 11 a.m. The storm is not believed to make any threat of landfall.
Meanwhile, multiple systems in the Atlantic are producing showers with potential for further development as of the NHC’s 8 a.m. update.
First, forecasters are eyeing a trough of low pressure with less organized shower activity, located about midway between the west coast of Africa and the Windward Islands, according to the latest update. Forecasters do not expect this system to develop due to potential interaction with a large tropical wave a few hundred miles to its east. This system has a 10% chance to form in the next five days.
