A FAST developing storm could hit a US state while Tropical Storm Gaston sweeps east through the country.
The system that could hit Florida in the next few days could become the next named system and even turn into a hurricane, experts said.
As Hurricane Fiona sweeps through the Atlantic, forecasters have spotted an ominous cluster of storms entering the Gulf of Mexico.
The storm, which will likely be named Hermione, could become a massive threat that could hit US soil in days or even hours, according to the National Hurricane Center.
“The fact that almost every computer model is turning this into a west-moving hurricane is absolutely concerning,” said CNN meteorologist Chad Meyers.
There is a 70 percent chance that the storm will become a tropical depression in 48 hours and a 90 percent chance that evolution will occur in the next five days.
While the models show the fast-growing storm moving west, it’s important to note that they are not always accurate.
“There is a lot of uncertainty at the moment,” said a spokesman for the hurricane center.
“But yes, it’s something we’re keeping an eye on and watching closely as we get into the weekend and early next week.”
The cooling model shows the disturbance will move west-northwest across the Caribbean weather edge and toward the central Caribbean Sea later in the week.
The unnamed storm is scheduled to hit the Florida Panhandle by September 30, but will be much smaller by the time it arrives.
This storm follows Tropical Storm Gaston, which is heading towards Portugal in the coming days.
