If it becomes a tropical storm it will likely become Humberto.
Potential Tropical Cyclone 9, soon to be Humberto, has formed in the Bahamas. There’s still a lot of uncertainty regarding potential impacts in North Carolina. In the short term, this will bring heavy rain and tropical storm force winds to the northwestern Bahamas. pic.twitter.com/gsO6NiONip

The latest outlook from the National Hurricane Center now pushes the system farther east due to an overnight shift in the models.
At 5 p.m. Thursday, the system had 30 mph winds and was moving northwest at 8 mph.
For now, it’s too early to say if this will be an issue for North Carolina, but we still can’t let our guard down.
Keep in mind we’re still in the peak of hurricane season. We’ll keep you updated on any changes.
