NASA looks at compact Tropical Storm Don in infrared light

The beginning of the 2017 hurricane season has shown some activity with Tropical Storms Bret and Cindy in June, but August through October is considered the peak of the season. Heavy rain and gusty winds are expected there starting late Tuesday.

On Monday afternoon an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance plane is set to investigate the disturbance, if needed.

Forecasters gave Invest 95L a 50 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression or storm in the next 48 hours. After that time, less favorable upper-level winds are expected to hinder additional development.

Hurricane Fernanda as of Monday morning is a Category 3 storm with top winds of 125 miles per hour.

The system, located about 750 miles east of the Windward Islands and moving west at about 15 mph, had no defined center early Monday but was expected to encounter conditions that could help it intensify.

Another tropical wave, with a low chance of development during the next two days, will continue to drift slowly west-northwest.

Hurricane Fernanda is a Category 3 Hurricane spinning in the East Pacific.
