System Is Reminder That Peak Hurricane Season Nears

UPDATE: 2PM SUNDAY — This disturbance now has a 50 percent chance of development within 48 hours, a significant increase since this report first appeared early Sunday.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There is a new tropical system quite far away, but every system is notable as we approach the peak of hurricane season. NOAA just upped its prediction for the season to “extremely active,” with the likelihood of 25 named storms.


The new system is nothing to panic over at this point. It’s out there. Far out there. It may or may not become anything of note.

From the National Hurricane Center early Sunday morning:



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

1. Showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave located a 
few hundred miles south-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands are 
showing signs of organization. However, recent satellite-derived 
wind data indicate that the system is not very well-defined at the 
surface. Some slow development of this system is possible over the 
next few days while it moves westward across the tropical eastern 
Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
