Too Early For Path Prediction, Tropical Waves Are Between Florida and Africa

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The National Hurricane Center says two tropical depressions are likely to form over the next few days. They are the waves marked with a “red x” above between Florida and Africa. The ovals are not paths, but the areas in which the depressions are likely to develop. One has a 90 percent chance of formation, the other an 80 percent chance.

The yellow x’s above have very low chances of formation over the next several days.

We remind our readers that the five day outlook is not a perfect forecast. There is nothing to worry about at this point. But being aware of tropical activity during September is a good idea. Paulette and Rene are the next two storm names during this Atlantic hurricane season.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Sun Sep 6 2020

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

An area of low pressure located about midway between the west coast 
of Africa and the Leeward Islands is gradually becoming better 
defined.  However, the associated showers and thunderstorms remain 
disorganized.  Gradual development of this system is expected, and 
a tropical depression is likely to form in the next day or so while 
it moves westward or west-northwestward across the central tropical 
Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.

Showers and thunderstorms are showing signs of organization in 
association with a tropical wave that is located just off the coast 
of western Africa. Gradual development of this system is expected, 
and a tropical depression is likely to form by the middle of the 
week while it moves generally westward over the far eastern 
tropical Atlantic. Interests in the Cabo Verde Islands should 
monitor the progress of this system as gusty winds and locally 
heavy rainfall is possible there on Monday and Tuesday.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

A tropical wave located over the central Caribbean Sea continues to 
produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms.  Development, if 
any, of this system should be slow to occur during the next day or 
two while it moves westward across the central and western 
Caribbean Sea.  After that time, unfavorable upper-level winds 
should limit its formation chances.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.

A trough of low pressure located a couple of hundred miles 
southeast of Bermuda is producing disorganized cloudiness and 
showers.  Environmental conditions are only marginally conducive 
for development during the next several days while this system 
moves west-northwestward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

hurricane forecast sunday sept 6

No, not as of Sunday morning, September 6, 2020. The National Hurricane Center is watch two tropical waves that may develop into tropical depressions over the next several days. Those waves are between Africa and Florida which suggests it’s a good time to pay attention if you live in Florida or along the coast. But for now, these are just tropical waves.
