Karl strengthens, Julia lingers, and does another system await?

Two tropical systems continued to work their way through the Atlantic, while a third gained in chance of formation, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Tropical Depression Julia, which was downgraded from a tropical storm over the weekend, is expected to move north overnight onto the southeastern North Carolina coast.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Karl is expected to increase in strength both tonight and Monday, possibly reaching hurricane strength by Thursday. However, landfall isn’t in Karl’s forecast at any time in the next five days.

Finally, a third system, a large low-pressure area, is off the coast of Africa, nearing the Cape Verde Islands. This system has a 50 percent chance of formation in the next two days, and an 80 percent chance in the next five, forecasters say.

None of these systems are expected to impact Florida over the next few days.
