The National Hurricane Center is tracking one post-tropical cyclone in the Atlantic basin. No other activity is forecast over the next five days.
“The atmosphere is always trying to balance out its heat energy and we’ve had a lot of activity over the past three weeks. I think this is one of the balancing acts right now,” said AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski.
“You can have lulls, but you have to keep your eyes open.”
Hurricane season lasts through Nov. 30.
Here’s the latest update from the NHC as of Thursday, Sept. 24.
