Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton, Palm Beach County: It’s Too Early To Do Anything But Watch


SIGNIFICANT UPDATE: Click Here For 2PM Friday, August 28th Update.

BOCA RATON, FL ( — 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.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Fri Aug 28 2020

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

The Weather Prediction Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Depression Laura, located inland over northeastern Arkansas.

1. A tropical wave located about 900 miles east of the Windward 
Islands is producing an area of showers and thunderstorms.  Some 
gradual development of this system is possible during the next 
several days while it moves westward at about 15 mph toward the 
eastern Caribbean islands.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.

2. Another tropical wave is located over the eastern Atlantic Ocean 
just west of the Cabo Verde Islands. The northern part of this 
wave, which should move rapidly westward over the central 
Atlantic during the next few days, is not forecast to develop as it 
is expected to remain in unfavorable environmental conditions.  
However, the southern part of the wave is expected to 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.
