“We are monitoring this system and you should be too. It’s too soon to know what will form or where it will go, but this is an important reminder to stay vigilant because Hurricane Season is not over,” Edwards said in a tweet.

The National Weather Service said “conditions appear to be conducive for further development and a tropical depression will likely form within the next day or so” near the Gulf of Mexico.

The next name on the Atlantic Hurricane Season list is “Zeta,” CNN has reported.
