2 potential hurricanes are already on the horizon after Dorian

Hurricane season is relentless, and several more storms could follow Hurricane Dorian, which, while still forceful, has been downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane as it progresses toward the United States.

Tropical Depression Seven is brewing in the Gulf of Mexico; the National Hurricane center is predicting it will morph into a tropical storm soon, at which time it will take the name Fernand. It's expected to make landfall in northern Mexico on Wednesday, bringing with it heavy rain over a number of days.

There is also a 90 percent chance that a cyclone will form in the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of Africa within the next two days, and a 40 percent chance that another cyclone will form south of Bermuda in that same timeframe, CNN reports. It is unclear whether either of these potential hurricanes will be a threat to make landfall at some point.
