NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 PM EDT Thu Aug 27 2020

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Storm Laura, located inland over northwestern Louisiana.

1. A westward-moving tropical wave located over the far eastern 
tropical Atlantic near the Cabo Verde Islands continues to produce 
disorganized shower activity.  Although environmental conditions are 
not expected to be conducive for development during the next couple 
of days, they are forecast to gradually become more favorable over 
the weekend and into early next week when the wave moves into the 
central and then western tropical Atlantic. 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

2. Shower and thunderstorm activity has increased today in association 
with a tropical wave over the central tropical Atlantic.  Gradual 
development of this system is possible over the next several days as 
it moves westward at 15 to 20 mph. 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.

    1. Fear mongering idiots. Has a < 30% chance of storm formation

      Ed. Note: You’re the idiot. Laura had a 10 percent chance of formation in roughly the same location. See how that worked out for folks in Louisiana.
