(MIAMI, FLA) — Today breaks the record for the third longest streak in history without a named storm in the Atlantic.
According to the National Hurricane Center, we have yet to have a named storm in the month of August or a hurricane all season.
But, the NHC is currently monitoring a tropical disturbance in the Atlantic that will likely become a tropical depression or storm by the end of the week.
The National Hurricane Center is actively watching four areas right now for tropical development, and two have a decent shot of affecting the US on Labor Day weekend. https://t.co/kyUmA4jvL5

At this time, none of the areas of concern in the tropics are a threat to Florida, according to meteorologists.
There is a 50% chance of formation over the next two days and an 80% chance of formation over the next five days, the NHC forecast.
If the tropics remain quiet until September it will be the first time August has been storm-free since 1997.
