Florida In Current Long Range Path Of Three Tropical Waves, Development Chance Extremely High
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Two tropical waves in the eastern Atlantic — and one about to roll off the coast of Africa — should be watched close by Floridians and Gulf Coast residents. One has a 70 percent chance of development according to hurricane forecasters, the second has 40 percent chance. The two waves could merge into one storm. A third wave — which has yet to materialize — already has a 20 percent chance of development at five days.
The uptick in tropical activity comes as Nana and Omar continue to churn. Neither are a threat to the U.S. Mainland.
While no storm is something to fear at the moment, this is the time of year to keep an eye on everything happening in the Atlantic if you live in Florida, the Gulf Coast, or a long the East Coast.
