Early Wednesday morning update from the National Hurricane Center.


BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The tropical wave represented by the yellow X above is set to dissipate over the next few days, according to Meteorologists at the National Hurricane Center.

But a new tropical wave, not yet represented on the map, is expected to form, with a 20 percent chance of development from the start. It will not present a threat to South Florida, if it ever does, for quite some time.

This is the early morning update from the National Hurricane Center:

A small and weak area of low pressure, with limited shower and
thunderstorm activity, is passing near the Cabo Verde Islands.
Significant development of this system is not expected during the
next day or so due to unfavorable upper-level winds and marginally
warm waters. Afterwards, this system is forecast to move northward
or north-northwestward over cooler waters, ending its development
chances. Locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds are possible over
portions of the Cabo Verde Islands through today.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…10 percent.

A tropical wave is forecast to move off the west coast of Africa by
late Thursday. Environmental conditions appear somewhat conducive
for some slow development over the far eastern Atlantic through the
weekend into early next week while this system moves generally
westward at about 15 mph.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.
