HURRICANE CENTER MONDAY: Watching Waves, Florida Still In Path

8AM UPDATE FROM NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER ON AUGUST 31, 2020

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There are still four tropical waves in the Atlantic being watched by the National Hurricane Center, and two remain on an extended path towards Florida. One, expected to roll off the African coast over the next few days, already has a 30 percent chance of development. That is notable for a system so far away. It is on a similar path to a system ahead which as of 8AM has diminished to just a 10 percent chance of development. They are both marked by a “yellow x.”

The two “red X” systems above are not Florida-bound, but likely to develop into named storms. A “red X” indicates a 60-percent or greater chance of formation.

We stress that the five day path often changes and is used primarily as an advisory from the National Hurricane Center— it’s something to watch but not to fear.


The next four storm names are Nana, Omar, Paulette and Rene.

Here is the 8 AM advisory from the National Hurricane Center:



Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Mon Aug 31 2020

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

1. A broad area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave over 
the central Caribbean Sea has changed little in organization since 
yesterday. However, environmental conditions are expected to 
gradually become more conducive for development, and a tropical 
depression is likely to form during the next couple of days while 
the system moves westward at at 15 to 20 mph. Interests in Jamaica, 
Honduras, Belize, Guatemala and the Yucatan peninsula should monitor 
the progress of this disturbance.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

2. An area of low pressure is located about 150 miles south-southeast 
of Wilmington, North Carolina. This system has become better 
organized overnight, and a tropical depression is likely to form 
within a day or so while the system moves northeastward, near but 
offshore of the southeastern coast of the United States, and then 
away from land.  An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is 
scheduled to investigate the system this afternoon if necessary.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

3. A tropical wave is expected to emerge off the coast of Africa in a 
couple of days. Gradual development of this system will be possible 
through the end of the week while it moves slowly westward over the 
far eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.

4. Another tropical wave is located over the eastern Atlantic Ocean, 
several hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. This 
system is producing little shower activity, and further development 
of this system is not expected.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.
