Tropics and Long Island weather through Labor Day
While there are 4 systems to watch in the tropics, there are no imminent threats to the United States. The system off the coast of the Carolinas has been designated as Invest 90L, and the system in the Caribbean has been designated as Invest 99L. Looking at the 15-day Euro ensembles map in the 2nd image, you can see that there is a pretty good chance of a hurricane or two out in the Atlantic before the middle of the month; however, for the most part the ensemble members keep them out in the Atlantic.
