Potential storm brewing in the Atlantic

The slow 2014 hurricane season is flickering back to life as an area of low pressure is now forecast to become something stronger.

92L, as it is called, stands a 70 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression or tropical storm Bertha this week.

The future storm is forecast to move west-northwest at 15 to 20mph toward the Lesser Antilles. Right now 92L is more than 1,200 miles east of Antigua and 3,500 miles east-southeast of Brownsville.

The long range forecast does not appear friendly to this potential storm, loads of dry air and wind shear aloft promise to cut it fairly short.
