TROPICAL STORM “NANA” IS BORN
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The wave that wasn’t much of anything early this morning now has a 40-percent chance of developing into a tropical system. Its five-day path has it gaining strength as it treks towards Florida.
The upgrade in strength and speed is significant. While anything can — and often does — happen with storms this far out, it is certainly one to watch as the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season continues.
Meantime, tropical system “16” above is now “Tropical Storm Nana.” It remains on course that does not appear to affect the U.S. Mainland.
The latest forecast is below.
The National Hurricane Center is also watching Tropical Depression 15 which remains off the Atlantic coast. The next two storm names are Omar and Paulette. NOAA expects the extremely busy hurricane season to eventually lead to 25 named storms.
Here is the latest update from the National Hurricane Center:
Tropical Weather Outlook NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 800 AM EDT Tue Sep 1 2020 For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Depression Fifteen, located more than 100 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. 1. A well-organized cluster of showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave continues to move quickly westward across the central Caribbean Sea. Although the disturbance does not yet have a well-defined circulation center, ship observations indicate that tropical-storm-force winds are occurring in the northern portion of wave to the southeast of Jamaica, which will spread near or just south of Jamaica later this morning and into this afternoon. Environmental conditions are expected to become a little more conducive for development, and a tropical depression or a tropical storm is likely to form during the next day or so before the system reaches Central America Wednesday night. Locally heavy rains and gusty winds are possible on Jamaica today, and interests there, as well as in northern Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, and the Yucatan Peninsula, should monitor the progress of this system. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is currently en route to investigate the disturbance. Potential tropical cyclone or tropical cyclone advisories will likely be issued later today, along with watches and warnings. Additional information on this system can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent. 2. A tropical wave is expected to emerge off the coast of Africa in a day or so. 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...medium...40 percent. High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service can be found under AWIPS header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and online at ocean.weather.gov/shtml/NFDHSFAT1.php.
