TROPICS: Tracking two tropical waves

Weather

From the National Hurricane Center: There are currently two tropical waves that have a low chance of development in the next five days.

  1. A tropical wave is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms
    over Hispaniola, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. This system is
    forecast to move west-northwestward to northwestward during the next
    several days, producing locally heavy rainfall over portions of the
    northern Caribbean and the Bahamas. Conditions could become
    marginally conducive for development late this week when the
    disturbance moves near Florida and the northwestern Bahamas.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…10 percent.
  1. A tropical wave located over the eastern tropical Atlantic, a few
    hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands, continues to produce
    a broad area of shower activity. No significant development of this
    system is expected for the next few days while it moves westward at
    15 to 20 mph. Upper-level winds could become more conducive for
    development by the weekend while the wave continues westward across
    the central Atlantic.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.
