BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Two tropical waves continue to be under the watchful eyes of forecasters at the National Hurricane Center. As of early Tuesday morning, one of the waves appears to be destined for nothing, while a second may be something of interest to Florida’s east coast.
Even so, the system shows just a 20 percent chance of development over the next five days.
The systems are marked by yellow X’s above. The ovals around the X’s indicate where a system may form, not necessarily a direction of travel.
The Atlantic Hurricane Season continues through the end of November.
This is the early morning outlook for Tuesday, October 12th, 2021:
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: 1. Satellite-derived wind data indicate that the tropical wave, located a little over 150 miles east of the Windward Islands, has become less defined overnight. While this system continues to produce showers and thunderstorms primarily east of its center, strong upper-level winds will likely prevent further development during the next couple of days. Regardless of development, the system could produce locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds across portions of the central and northern Lesser Antilles today. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent. 2. Another tropical wave moving over Hispaniola is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Although environmental conditions are not forecast to be conducive for development of this system, a broad area of low pressure, however, is expected to form near the southeast Bahamas on Wednesday and drift generally eastward through the end of the week. Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall is possible over portions of the Lesser Antilles, Puerto Rico, and Hispaniola during the next couple of days. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
