HOUSTON, Texas (KIAH) Three named storms formed in the Atlantic in the last couple of days: Odette, Peter and Rose. Thankfully, none of these are expected to significantly impact land.

All of this tropical activity is a good reminder that we are still in the thick of hurricane season, which officially runs through the end of November.

Another disturbance west of Africa shows high potential to become the next named storm, which would be Sam.
