BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The National Hurricane Center says the red x that you see above is likely form into a tropical depression either over the weekend or early next week. Forecasters say it has a 90 percent chance of development in the red oval area over the next five days. What happens after that remains unclear. The system is between Africa and Florida.

The yellow x, which has been watched for days, is now unlikely to develop into much of anything, but another wave expected to move off the coast of Africa on Sunday has a 70 percent chance of developing into something that may be worth watching.

We stress the five day outlook is not a tracking map but where systems are expected to form or develop. Official tracking begins once a system becomes named or numbered.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Sat Sep 5 2020

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Depression Omar, located about 500 miles east-northeast of Bermuda.

1. Shower activity has become less organized in association with a 
trough of low pressure located about midway between the west coast 
of Africa and the Windward Islands.  Significant development 
of this system is not expected, as it will likely be hindered by 
the interaction with a large tropical wave located a few hundred 
miles to its east.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.

2. A tropical wave and area of low pressure located over the eastern 
tropical Atlantic continues to produce a large area of 
disorganized showers and thunderstorms.  Gradual development of 
this system is expected while it moves westward to 
west-northwestward, and a tropical depression is likely to form late 
this weekend or early next week when the system reaches the central 
tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.

3. 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 is likely to form by the middle 
of next week while it moves generally westward over the far eastern 
tropical Atlantic. 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.
