BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There is no guarantee it will become anything to worry about, but the National Hurricane Center says yet another wave is expected to roll off the coast of Africa during this exceptionally busy Atlantic Hurricane season. It is “likely” the wave forms into a tropical system towards the end of the week or beginning of the weekend. It is much too early to have any idea about a path.
Meantime, Rene and Paulette continue to be no issue for the U.S. Mainland.
Here is the early tropical weather discussion from the National Hurricane Center for Wednesday, September 29th.
