Two Waves Being Watched. One Tracking Towards Florida.
Worth Watching For Palm Beach County
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Friday afternoon advisory from the National Hurricane Center brings a significant update to one of the two tropical waves being tracked in the Atlantic.
The furthest wave as of 8 p.m. is now represented by an “orange x,” that means it has increased to a 40-60-percent chance of developing into a tropical system. The five day track for this wave continues to keep Florida in range. The second wave appears headed for the Gulf.
