We are approaching peak hurricane season, and the tropics are starting to flare.

This is the early morning update from the National Hurricane Center for Thursday, August 5th, 2021:

For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

A tropical wave just inland over Africa is producing a large area of
showers and thunderstorms over the Guinea Highlands. This wave is
expected to move off the west African coast later today.
Environmental conditions appear somewhat conducive for gradual
development, and a tropical depression could form over the eastern
tropical Atlantic by early next week while the system moves westward
to west-northwestward at about 15 mph.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent.

A tropical wave located over the central tropical Atlantic is
producing a broad area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.
Environmental conditions are expected to be marginally conducive for
some slow development east of the Lesser Antilles by early next week
while the disturbance moves west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.
