FORECASTERS ALSO WATCHING TWO WAVES WHICH WITH LONG-TERM FLORIDA TRACKS
BOCA RATON, BOYNTON BEACH, DELRAY BEACH NOW IN PEAK HURRICANE SEASON
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There are now two named tropical systems being monitored by the National Hurricane Center as two tropical waves continue to develop with a potential track to Florida.
Tropical Storm Omar joined Tropical Storm Nana Tuesday afternoon as the latest additions to the very active 2020 Hurricane Season. Neither storm is expected to impact the mainland United States.
Two tropical waves, however, just off the coast of Africa are gaining strength. One has a 50 percent chance of development, the other — just formed — is holding at 20 percent. We remind our readers that the devastating Hurricane Laura started in the same area with a low percentage chance of development. Cleanup and assessment continues along the Gulf Coast.
Here is the latest from the National Hurricane Center:
