(WLTX) - After weeks of inactivity, the tropics now has two systems churning at the same time.
Tropical Storm Florence became organized Saturday morning, joining Ernesto, which reached the same status earlier in the week.
Florence has maximum sustained winds of 45 miles an hour, and is moving to the west-northwest at 16 miles an hour.
The current consensus track from the National Hurricane Center has Florence continuing on this path until next Thursday; it's track after that remains uncertain.
As for Ernesto, it continues to make its way across the southern Gulf of Mexico, and on its current trajectory, will collided with the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, and perhaps turn to threaten southern Texas.
There is also a blob of storms near the Bahamas. At this point, it's not expected to form into a tropical storm, but it could bring showers and storms to South Carolina early to mid-week.
