BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There are now two tropical waves in the Atlantic that should be watched closely by those in Florida and along the Gulf Coast. The first wave, which we reported on this morning, continues on a five-day path that appears to be Florida-bound. We stress it’s early. Paths change.

Report Now Updated With 8pm Advisory From National Hurricane Center on August 27, 2020.

The second wave, which just developed Thursday afternoon, is on a five-day path into the Gulf — seemingly like Hurricane Laura. Again, it’s early and there is no need to panic. But this is the time of year that all waves should be watched closely.

The five-day tracks change often — the National Hurricane Center map above is meant to inform, not to scare.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 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 southern Arkansas.

1. Showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave over the 
central tropical Atlantic have gradually become a little better 
organized during the day.  Additional development of this system is 
possible during the next several days while it moves westward 
at about 15 mph.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.

2. A tropical wave located over the eastern Atlantic Ocean just west 
of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing disorganized shower and 
thunderstorm activity.  The northern part of this wave, which is 
expected to move rapidly westward over the central Atlantic during 
the next few days, is forecast to remain too far to the north and 
in an unfavorable environment for development to occur.  However, 
the southern part of the wave is expected be nearly stationary 
south of the Cabo Verde Islands for the next several days, and some 
development of this system is possible early next week when it 
begins to move slowly westward over the eastern and central 
tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.
