BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The tropics are rockin’ and rollin’. The latest update from the National Hurricane Center shows a significant amount of activity. While there is nothing to be overly concerned about at this point, note the yellow X’s off the east coast, near Florida and in the Gulf of Mexico. While none appear poised to turn into a significant event, read the tropical outlook below for the official breakdown.
Meantime, a tropical wave just of the African coast already shows a 90 percent chance of formation. That is the “orange” x above and certainly one to watch.
We always stress that the ovals you see on the five day outlook represent where a depression may form, not necessarily a path of travel. The ovals are not the same as a “cone.”
Here is the morning update from the National Hurricane Center for Thursday, September 10th, 2020.
