RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Hanna, the first hurricane of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season has made landfall in South Texas as a Category 1 storm with maximum sustained winds up to 90 mph at landfall. The storm will now become a rainmaker as it moves over far Southern Texas and Mexico.

Tropical Storm Gonzalo developed in the Atlantic Wednesday morning and has weakened into a tropical depression due to an unfavorable atmospheric environment. The storm is expected to fizzle out completely in the next few days.

The next storm we’re keeping an eye on is a tropical wave close to Africa that shows a 80% chance of development within the next 5 days with its westward movement. This system has the potential to move near the U.S. during the first week of August and could become a bigger concern over the coming days. Stay tuned.

We will keep you up to date with all of these areas of development over the coming days.
