One Wave Dies, Another Rolls Off Africa, Two Remain Likely To Strengthen Soon
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Things change quickly when it comes to tropical systems this time of year. One of the two Florida-tracking waves that forecasters have been watching for days has dissipated, but another has rolled off the African coast and is showing a five-day path that keeps Florida as a possibility.
Two other waves are strengthening — one in the Gulf, the other now in the Atlantic.

An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is en route to investigate the system. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent. 3.
