BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center say a tropical wave in the Atlantic now has a 90-percent chance of developing into a tropical depression. While it is still possible the storm develops — then dissipates — it’s a reminder that we are entering the active part of what is expected to be an extremely active hurricane season.
We remind our readers in South Florida that NOAA is now calling for 25 named storms.
Here’s the 2 p.m. (Tuesday, August 11, 2020) update:
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: A low pressure system is located over the eastern tropical Atlantic more than a thousand miles east of the Lesser Antilles. Shower and thunderstorm activity decreased somewhat this morning, but new activity is now forming near the system's center of circulation. If these storms persist, then advisories would likely be initiated on a tropical depression later today or tonight. Even if a depression does not form by tonight, environmental conditions are expected to become more conducive for development while the system moves west-northwestward at around 15 mph during the next couple of days. Conditions are expected to become less conducive for development by the end of the week. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.
