    The tropical disturbance over the Bahamas has strengthened into a tropical storm. The National Weather Service takes Humberto through the northern portion of the Bahamas. 

    The northern portion of the Bahama island chain will likely see several inches of rain over the next 24 hours. The storm will impact areas that were hard hit by Dorian nearly two weeks ago. 

    The National Hurricane Center expects the storm to stay well east of Florida. Tropical storm watches have been lifted for the sunshine state and the eventual storm track takes a potential Category 1 hurricane out to see next week. 

    Humberto may come close to the island of Bermuda by the middle of next week. 

    Mid-September brings the peak of tropical storm and hurricane season with, on average, the highest number of named storms.
