A Triangle of Storms

Three storm systems are developing in the Atlantic, each with a likelihood of intensifying into a tropical cyclone. Shown in this image, captured by the GOES-East satellite at 1315z, the storms form a near-perfect inverted triangle. Currently, the National Hurricane Center predicts the northwest system has the greatest likelihood of becoming a tropical cyclone, with a 60% chance. The farthest east storm has around a 50% chance of cyclone formation, while the southern storm has a 20% chance.
