A tropical depression is expected to form by early next week in the Central Atlantic, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Closer to Florida, a tropical wave in the Caribbean has a low chance for development but is forecast to bring heavy rain to portions of Florida over the next several days.

The Hurricane Center has been monitoring the system in the Caribbean for the past several days.

Aug 1 – A tropical wave will bring greater shower/storm chances through this weekend. Heavy rain and localized flooding are possible, so keep up with the forecast.

Significant development of this system is not expected before it merges with a front and accelerates northeastward off the southeastern U.S. coast on Sunday.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours: near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days: 0 percent.

A broad low pressure system located about 1,000 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.

Where will #96L eventually track in the long term? It’s all up to the high pressure ridge over the SW Atlantic. EURO currently shows it weakening allowing the storm to recurve, while the GFS shows a stronger ridge and a more west track. This won’t be resolved until next week.

It’s still too early to tell whether Florida will be impacted by this storm but residents should always be prepared. Hurricane season runs until Nov. 30 and we’re entering the busiest months. The next named storm of the season will be Chantal.

Slow development of this system is expected during the next few days while it moves west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph, and a tropical depression is likely to form several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

Drenching showers and thunderstorms will gather over the southeastern corner of the nation and raise the risk of flash flooding and travel disruptions as tropical and non-tropical features converge into this weekend:

Environmental conditions are now forecast to become less favorable for additional development by early next week as the system approaches the Lesser Antilles.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours: 20 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days: 70 percent.
