The 10th named storm has become Tropical Storm Jerry for this year's Atlantic hurricane season.  

Jerry becomes one of 5 sytems in either the Gulf or Atlantic.  

WWL-TV meteorologist Dave Nussbaum explains what forecasters are looking at.

"Right now the tropics are pretty active as we are in the peak of hurricane season with Imelda over in Texas weakening, but still producing heavy flooding rains," Nussbaum said.  "We're looking at Humberto working its way toward Bermuda as a major hurricane and now Tropical Storm Jerry in the middle of the Atlantic.  Those 3 named storms continue to work their way across those areas."  

Nussbaum said we are watching 2 other waves out in the Atlantic but as of now, nothing to worry about here.  

"As active as the tropics are, nothing is threatening southeast Louisiana which is a good thing for this time of year," Nussbaum said.
