An already active 2021 hurricane season has produced two more named systems over the weekend, but neither is forecast to pose a threat to South Florida or the United States.
Tropical Storm Peter has winds of 50 mph and is located 150 miles northeast of the northern Leeward Islands, according to the National Hurricane Center's latest advisory.
Forecasts have Peter continuing its move to the west before making a turn to the north by mid-week and continuing away from land before losing strength.
Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Rose also formed over the weekend and now has winds of 40 mph. It's located 705 miles west of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands. Rose is forecast to continue its move north and away from land before dying out this weekend.
The 2021 hurricane season has been an active one so far, with 17 named storms already topping the average of 14 for an entire year. The six named hurricanes are below the average of seven, while the three major hurricanes are on average for an entire season.
