BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The National Hurricane Center is watching a tropical wave off the coast of Africa. The current tracking suggests this is likely nothing to lose sleep over, but tropical systems have a way of being surprising this time of year.

As things currently stand, the Hurricane Center says there’s just a ten percent chance of formation over the next five days.

NOAA Thursday declared that this will be an “extremely active” hurricane season, with as many as 25 named storms.


From the National Hurricane Center:



For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. A tropical wave is located several hundred miles west-southwest of 
the Cabo Verde Islands.  Slow development of this system is 
possible during the next couple of days as it moves slowly westward. 
After that time, environmental conditions are expected to become 
less conducive for development.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.
