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.
