Tropical Update: We continue to watch two tropical waves in the Atlantic

Tropics Watch

The StormTracker Team is currently monitoring two tropical waves across the Atlantic.

The first tropical wave stretches all the way from Puerto Rico to the southern Bahamas and is forecast to move northwestward to northward over the next few days. This will produce locally heavy rainfall over portions of the Greater Antille, the Bahamas, and Florida.

Once the disturbance turns and accelerates northeastward of the U.S. coast conditions could become marginally conducive fore development. As of now there is a 0% chance of formation over the next 48 hours and a 10% chance within the next 5 days.

The second tropical wave is located several hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. Due to a lack of support in the atmosphere there is little to no development expected over the next few days while it moves west over the Atlantic Ocean at 15 mph.

Environmental conditions become more conducive for development over the weekend and has the potential to become a tropical depression by early next week. The disturbance has a 0% chance for formation over the next 48 hours and a 70% chance over the next 5 days.

As of now, each disturbance is not anticipated to enter the Gulf of Mexico. Therefore, the threat to Louisiana is extremely low.
