BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The National Hurricane Center is now watching three tropical waves east of Florida as the peak of the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season nears.

One of the three waves has what meteorologists are calling a “50 percent chance of formation over the next five days.”

This is the 8 p.m. Friday night update from the National Hurricane Center:

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 PM EDT Fri Aug 6 2021

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

  1. A broad area of low pressure located a few hundred miles south of
    the Cabo Verde Islands is producing a large area of disorganized
    cloudiness and showers. Environmental conditions are expected to be
    somewhat conducive for development, and a tropical depression could
    form by the early to middle part of next week while the system moves
    west-northwestward to westward across the eastern and central
    tropical Atlantic at 10 to 15 mph.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…30 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent.
  1. A small but well-defined area of low pressure located over the
    eastern tropical Atlantic about a thousand miles west of the Cabo
    Verde Islands is producing limited shower activity. Development of
    this system, if any, is expected to be slow to occur while it
    drifts toward the west-southwest or west over the central tropical
    Atlantic through the middle of next week and potentially interacts
    with the broader area of low pressure to its east.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.
  1. A tropical wave located over the west-central tropical Atlantic
    is producing limited shower activity. Significant development of
    this system is not expected as it moves west-northwestward across
    the Lesser Antilles and eastern Caribbean Sea during the early to
    middle part of next week.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…10 percent.
