IT’S ALIVE! Tropics Very Active, Gulf, Florida, East Coast Should Watch

hurricane center thursday september 10

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.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Thu Sep 10 2020

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 over the eastern tropical Atlantic.

1. A trough of low pressure located just off the coast of North 
Carolina is producing minimal shower and thunderstorm activity.  
This system is expected to move inland over eastern North Carolina 
this afternoon, and therefore significant development is not 
expected.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...near 0 percent.

2. A large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms centered a 
couple of hundred miles northeast of the Central Bahamas is 
associated with a surface trough of low pressure.  This system is 
forecast to move westward, crossing the Bahamas and Florida on 
Friday and moving into the eastern Gulf of Mexico over the weekend. 
Upper-level winds are expected to become conducive for some 
development of this system while it moves slowly west-northwestward 
over the eastern Gulf of Mexico early next week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.

3. Another trough of low pressure has developed over the northeastern 
Gulf of Mexico and is producing a few disorganized showers and 
thunderstorms.  Some slow development of this system is possible 
while this system moves westward and then southwestward over the 
northern and western Gulf of Mexico through early next week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

4. A tropical wave is now moving off the west coast of Africa, 
producing a large area of showers and thunderstorms.  Gradual 
development of this system is forecast, and a tropical depression 
is expected to form by this weekend or early next week while the 
system moves generally westward across the eastern and central 
tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.

5. Another tropical wave is forecast to emerge off the west coast of 
Africa this weekend.  Environmental conditions are expected to be 
conducive for development, and a tropical depression could form 
over the far eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean early next week while 
the system moves slowly westward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.
