Tropical Waves developing very rapidly

tropical wave
  • A weak area of low pressure, associated with a tropical wave,
    located more than 900 miles east of the Lesser Antilles continues
    to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Some slow
    development of this system is possible during the next few days
    before upper-level winds become unfavorable for tropical cyclone
    formation. This system is expected to move generally westward
    across the tropical Atlantic Ocean for the next several days.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.
  • A surface trough interacting with an upper-level low is producing
    disorganized showers and thunderstorms from the north coast of
    Hispaniola northward over the southwestern Atlantic for a few
    hundred miles. Little, if any, development of this disturbance is
    expected during the next few days while it moves west-northwestward
    across the Bahamas and the Florida peninsula. However, environmental
    conditions could become a little more conducive for development
    when the system moves into the Gulf of Mexico over the weekend.
    Regardless of development, this disturbance will produce periods of
    gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall across the Bahamas through
    Thursday, and across Florida on Friday and continuing into the
    weekend.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.
  • A tropical wave located just off the west coast of Africa is
    expected to move quickly westward during the next several days.
    Some slow development is possible late this week and over the
    weekend when the system is several hundred miles east of the
    Lesser Antilles.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.
