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.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Thu Sep 3 2020

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Storm Nana, inland over southern Belize, and on Tropical Depression 
Omar, located a few hundred miles north-northeast of Bermuda.

1. A broad area of low pressure located over the eastern tropical 
Atlantic several hundred miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde 
Islands is producing a small area of disorganized showers and 
thunderstorms.  Gradual development is possible early next week as 
the larger tropical wave located off of the coast of Africa passes 
to the north of the system on Sunday.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

2. A tropical wave located off the coast of west Africa is merging with 
another disturbance located a couple of hundred miles south of the 
Cabo Verde Islands, resulting in an extensive area of disorganized 
showers and thunderstorms.  Development of this system is likely to 
be slow during the next couple of days while it moves west- 
northwestward at about 15 mph, and a tropical depression is more 
likely to form early next week over the central tropical Atlantic 
where environmental conditions are forecast to be more favorable 
for development.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

3. Another tropical wave is forecast to move off the west coast of 
Africa over the weekend.  An area of low pressure is expected to 
form from the wave, and some development of this low will be 
possible early next week while it moves generally westward over the 
far eastern tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
