SIGNIFICANT UPDATE: Click Here For 2PM Friday, August 28th Update.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Two tropical waves in the Atlantic are worth watching based on five day tracks from the National Hurricane Center. The extended track for one continues to keep Florida in its path, the second appears to be on a long range trek to the Gulf.
It is too early to know what either system will do. Both could fizzle. But Hurricane Laura, which just slammed into Louisiana, was also a small wave with a low chance of formation when it was in roughly the same area as the current waves.

The next two storm names are Nana and Omar. We stress that five day paths are highly unpredictable, but it is peak hurricane season — anyone in a potentially affected area should keep an eye on storm activity.
Here is the current advisory from the National Hurricane Center.
