Still Too Early For Concern, But System Is One To Watch


BOCA RATON, FL ( — The tropical wave that Sunday appeared unlikely to develop is today looking like something to watch. The National Hurricane Center now says the yellow “X” above has a 60-percent chance of becoming a tropical depression — despite conditions becoming “less conducive” for development later in the week. Simply put: it’s too early to rule this in — or out — as something that could affect South Florida at some point.

From the National Hurricane Center at 8 a.m. Monday:

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave and broad 
area of low pressure located about 600 miles west-southwest of the 
Cabo Verde Islands have changed little in organization since 
yesterday.  Environmental conditions are expected to be somewhat 
conducive for development to occur, and a tropical depression could 
form during the next day or two while the disturbance moves 
generally westward to west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph across the 
tropical Atlantic.  Conditions are forecast to become less 
conducive for development by the end of the week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent.
