TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — We could see the ninth named tropical storm of the Atlantic Hurricane Season form within the next few days, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Meteorologists are watching a broad area of low pressure in the Central Atlantic. The system is not very organized but is producing showers and thunderstorms.

The National Hurricane Center says this system will likely form into a tropical storm within the next couple of days. The tropical storm would be named Isaias.

Hurricane Hanna made landfall in South Texas this weekend-- bringing high winds, flooding and storm surge to the Corpus Christi region.

Meanwhile out in the Pacific, portions of Hawaii are under a hurricane warning as Hurricane Douglas slowly churns toward the state.
