DEEP BREATH: Tropical Systems NOT Heading To Florida

Boca Raton Florida hurricane News Palm Beach County

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Tropical Storms Rene and Paulette may look menacing, but they are merely menaces to the open waters of the Atlantic. Neither system is expected to impact the United States Mainland. Florida appears to be in the clear.

But it’s not all good news yet. There is a developing tropical wave off the coast of North Carolina and South Carolina with a 40-percent chance of formation over the next 5 five days. There is also a tropical wave rolling off the coast of Africa with a 70-percent chance of formation over the next five days.

The next two storm names are Sally and Teddy.

Here is the latest overall update from the National Hurricane Center.


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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Storm Paulette, located over the central tropical Atlantic, and on 
Tropical Storm Rene, located near the western Cabo Verde Islands.

An area of low pressure is located about 300 miles west-southwest of 
Bermuda. Showers and thunderstorm activity associated with the low 
has increased since last night, but remains somewhat disorganized. 
Gradual additional development of this system is possible during the 
next two or three days and it could become a tropical depression 
while it moves slowly westward to west-northwestward. Interests 
along the southeast coast of the U.S. should monitor the progress of 
this disturbance.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

A tropical wave is forecast to emerge off the west coast of Africa 
by Thursday. Gradual development is expected once the system moves 
over water, and a tropical depression is likely to form late this 
week or over the weekend while the system moves generally westward 
across the eastern tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.
