NHC Monitoring Two Tropical Waves As Florida Still Reckoning Hurricane Ian Aftermath

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is monitoring two Atlantic tropical disturbances for possible development.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is monitoring two Atlantic tropical disturbances for possible development.

A tropical wave located several hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms, the NHC said in an advisory Monday morning. 

“An elongated area of low pressure located a few hundred miles south-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions are forecast to be favorable for some gradual development, and a tropical depression is likely to form around the middle part of this week,” said the NHC. “Further development will become less likely by the end of the week due to increasing upper-level winds. The system is forecast to move westward, then turn northwestward or northward by the end of the week over the eastern tropical Atlantic.”

Formation chances over the next 48 hours are 50% while increasing in five days to 70%.

It is currently moving at about 15 to 20 mph and could be in the Caribbean Sea by midweek as a tropical depression.

The second wave is several hundred miles east of the Windward Islands. Further development is possible during the next few days while it moves west.

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave located several hundred miles east of the southern Windward Islands have become slightly better organized since yesterday.

“Some further development of the wave is possible, and a tropical depression could form within the next few days while it moves generally westward at 15 to 20 mph, reaching the Windward Islands and the eastern Caribbean Sea by midweek. Interests in the Windward Islands should monitor the progress of the system,” said the NHC.

Formation chance through 48 hours is low at 30% and increases to 40% for the 5-day chance.
