A new weather system is brewing in the Atlantic, the National Hurricane Center has announced, with potential development into a cyclone or subtropical cyclone by midweek.

If it strengthens into a tropical storm it would become Patty, the 16th named storm of 2018.

Israel says its actions are necessary to defend the border and stop infiltrations and attacks, which it accuses Hamas of seeking to orchestrate.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center say a tropical wave located several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles could develop into something stronger by the middle of next week.

"It hasn't even really developed into anything yet", McMichael said."Conditions are becoming more favorable for something to develop". But forecasters say although it's rarer, historically, such storms can form in the months outside of the official hurricane season. Four of those made landfall along the mainland United States, including Alberto, Florence, Gordon and Michael, the third-most-intense hurricane ever to strike the United States. Hard-hit areas of Florida's Panhandle, Georgia and North and SC continue to recover from the impacts of Florence and Michael.
