40-Percent Chance Tropical Depression Forms Over the Weekend: National Hurricane Center

40-Percent Chance Tropical Depression Forms Over the Weekend: National Hurricane Center”

The National Hurricane Center said the systems formation chance through 48 hours was near zero, but through five days the chance it could develop into a stronger storm might rise to 20 percent.

There is a tropical wave near the Bahamas that is slowly steering away from us as it moves north.

NHC now brings tropical development up to 40% for the tropical wave in the Atlantic.

The other could become a tropical depression next week, according to the National Hurricane Center.

By Friday, Central Florida will begin to see increased rain chances as a result of this tropical wave.

It's now located several hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands and is producing widespread cloudiness and showers over the eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean. There is a lot of dry air and dust in the Atlantic that should inhibit development of the second wave, with the first wave over the Caribbean being too close to land for any real chance for development.

The disturbance is moving west at 15 miles per hour. Upper-level winds are expected to be unfavorable for any significant development of this disturbance during the next few days.

But that could change over the weekend, the hurricane center said, and a tropical depression could form early next week while it's several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles. If that occurs, it would be named Chantal.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs until November 30 but typically peaks around September 10.
