BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — It’s far, far away but it’s there. A new system off the coast of Africa.
The National Hurricane Center says the system has a 20 percent chance of formation over the next five days. That means there’s nothing to worry about now, but it’s never a bad idea as August starts to keep your eye on what’s happening in the Atlantic.
This is the official Monday afternoon update from the National Hurricane Center:
