Tracking the Tropics
Hurricane Nigel is located in the Central Atlantic. It will intensify into a major hurricane (Category 3) tonight through Wednesday morning as it moves NW. It will turn north then NE Wednesday into Friday and gradually weaken across the Central Atlantic. This is not a threat to the U.S.
A non-tropical low will form off the SE U.S. Coast later this week and could develop some subtropical characteristics. It will move up the U.S. East Coast and spread heavy rain and winds all weekend. NHC is giving this system a low chance to develop.
A tropical wave is expected to emerge off the African Coast by Wednesday. Conditions are favorable for slow development and a tropical depression is likely to form by this weekend in the eastern to central Atlantic. NHC is giving this system a high chance of developing.
