BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The five day track for one of two tropical waves in Atlantic continues to keep Florida in its path. The development chance is now 40-percent. The latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center shows little change in course or direction.

The second wave appears headed for the Gulf. The five day path for the second wave also shows little change over the past day.


Five day paths frequently change and are issued as an advisory. There is no need to panic, but awareness during the peak of hurricane season is key. Hurricane Laura, which caused massive destruction and devastation, also started with a low percentage of development chance when it was in roughly the same region as the two tropical waves.

Here is the 2PM advisory from the National Hurricane Center.
