Tropical Depression 8 should strengthen into a tropical storm before impacting the coastal Carolinas with rough surf and heavy downpours early this week.
Tropical Depression 9 developed just south of Florida on Sunday and will turn toward the northeastern Gulf Coast of the United States this week.
Regions dealing with Zika-carrying mosquitoes could have another threat to monitor as tropical activity picks up this season.
Following the development of Tropical Depression 8, an uptick in tropical systems will continue for the next six to eight weeks.
Slow-moving and repetitive downpours will raise the risk for flash flooding along the western Gulf Coast into early week.
