Each of the 3 is moving westward.

"The weekend brings some showers in the north and west with fewer east and south". Also, another impressive-looking tropical wave now located over western Africa is forecast to emerge into the far eastern Atlantic Ocean in about two days.

Rainfall warnings have been issued by Met Éireann for the counties of Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo as a low pressure area passes by Atlantic coasts. Ninety-three L has not yet entered the image to the right. The "L" represents potential formation for the Atlantic Ocean. This system is expected to move westward at 15 to 20 miles per hour across the tropical Atlantic Ocean, crossing into the Caribbean Sea on Friday. This system already has a weak circulation. As of Thursday, that forecast would take it toward the coast of Central America into the middle of next week.

"It's just going to bring in high surf to us", she said.

All three areas remain below a level of dry Saharan air, which can kill a developing cyclone if it gets sucked into its spin.

For example, a weak feature may have a greater chance of staying on a westerly course for a longer period of time.

Former Australian cricketer and Islamabad United coach Dean Jones also expressed sadness at the incident. "It's so sad to hear". A tweet from the Pakistan Cricket Board seemed to indicate that Zubair may have been batting without a helmet.

Late Sunday afternoon, Gert became the seventh named storm of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season.

These 3 disturbances are given numbers for computer tracking purposes, and are then called invests (short for investigations).

The storm is now passing across the Atlantic after coming close to the east coast of the U.S. and Canada, and its aftermath will lead to heavy rain battering Scotland.

Following a wave of non-related thunderstorms this weekend, an uptick in thunderstorms from 92L could reach the northwestern Bahamas and South Florida by Tuesday.

Gert is expected to cross the waters to the Irish coast on Friday and will arrive fully by the latter part of the weekend and into next week.

In its noon update, the Bermuda Weather Service said this had been downgraded to no threat.
