Meteorologists from the National Hurricane Center said the phenomenon is well organized and could evolve into a Category 1 hurricane by the weekend; there is no definition about the storm's route

For the seventh time since 1950, the month of August ended without a hurricane forming in the Atlantic Ocean, according to the Colorado State University meteorology department. The month of September, however, started with a different climate. Meteorologists from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported on Thursday morning that Tropical Depression Five formed in the northern Atlantic and is likely to become Hurricane Danielle, the first of the 2022 season.

According to the NHC, Five is well organized and moves north-east at a speed of two miles per hour with maximum winds of 35 mph. To become a hurricane, the strength of the winds must evolve to at least 90 mph, which, according to experts, has an 80% chance of occurring.

The agency stressed that it is still early to predict the route of the tropical depression, but so far, there is no risk for Florida, only expectation that the Labor Day weekend will be of many isolated rain showers across the state.
