ROANOKE, Va. – In the weeks following Dorian, the tropics have remained active. Thankfully, no storm has directly impacted U.S. soil since that storm. 

Humberto is a Category 2 hurricane, as of Tuesday morning, and continues to move out to sea. It will move north of Bermuda Wednesday and Thursday before racing east of Canada's Maritime Provinces this weekend.

Meanwhile, Tropical Depression 10 has developed over the open Atlantic and will move near/north of the Caribbean islands this weekend. It is forecast to become Tropical Storm Jerry either Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

It is still too soon to tell whether or not this will become a concern for the continental U.S.

Tropical Depression 11 has been upgraded to Tropical Storm Imelda.

It is currently off the coast of Texas and it is expected to make landfall later Tuesday. 

It will bring flooding rains to southeastern Texas.
