NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The disturbance we’ve been tracking into the Caribbean is poised to get the name Julia soon and is forecast to become a hurricane impact for Central America this weekend.

The National Hurricane Center has labeled this disturbance as a Potential Tropical Cyclone meaning it’s likely to develop soon and the first track has been issued. That track takes the storm due west across the southern Caribbean before impacting Nicaragua as a hurricane on Sunday.

The next name on the hurricane list this season is Julia followed by Karl. No other areas of formation are being monitored by the National Hurricane Center.
