BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Florida should pay attention to three waves in the Atlantic — always a good practice this time of year.
An extended range forecast from the National Hurricane Center includes three waves in various stages above — two currently visible in red and orange. Based on the most recent five day outlooks, one has a 70 percent chance of development, a second has a 50 percent chance, a third a 40 percent chance. All appear to be heading west. We stress: the five day outlook is just that — five days. It can be, and often is, nothing more than where a system may go. As we say in almost every update: there is no need to panic.

Meantime, Nana has vanished and Omar has a new friend — the yellow x on the map above. Neither pose a threat to the United States mainland.
As peak hurricane season continues, forecasters remind all that the mere presence of activity in the Atlantic or Gulf should come as a reminder to ensure you have a hurricane plan. The storms above are unquestionably several days from causing any concern at all, but keeping an eye on what they do is important this time of year.
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Depression Omar, located about 400 miles east-northeast of Bermuda. 1. A non-tropical area of low pressure is located over the north-central Atlantic about 500 miles south-southeast of Cape Race Newfoundland. This low is expected to move north-northeastward near 15 mph, and some slight subtropical or tropical development of this system is possible before it reaches cooler waters tonight. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent. 2. A nearly stationary broad area of low pressure is located over the east-central tropical Atlantic about midway between the west coast of Africa and the Windward Islands. This system continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms, and gradual development is possible after the larger tropical wave located near the Cabo Verde Islands passes to the north of this system on Sunday. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent. 3. A tropical wave located just west of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Gradual development of this system is expected as it moves westward to west-northwestward, and a tropical depression is likely to form early next week when the system reaches the central tropical Atlantic. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent. 4. Another tropical wave is forecast to move off the west coast of Africa on Sunday. Gradual development of this system is then expected, and a tropical depression could form by the middle of 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...medium...50 percent.
