Tropical Storm Peter Forms in the Atlantic

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) recorded tropical depression Peter as the 16th storm of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, after strengthening into a storm on Sunday, September 19.

The NHC said that Peter was about 435 miles east of the northern Leeward Islands and had sustained winds of 45 mph moving west-northwest on Sunday afternoon. 

NHC’s statement said that rainfall around the southern margin of tropical storm Peter may result in urban and small stream area flooding from late Sunday up to Tuesday. By mid-week, officials anticipate the storm to weaken as it approaches an adverse environment. 

Peter’s latest forecast indicated a northward spin around Wednesday, decreasing an impactful landfall as it rambles through the Atlantic. 

Forecasters are currently tracking a tropical depression in the far eastern part of the Atlantic Ocean.
