Developing Tropical Disturbances…
There are three (3) tropical disturbances in the Atlantic Ocean:
- A developing tropical wave in the far Atlantic continues to show signs of developing into a tropical cyclone (i.e. depression or storm) within the next few days. It has a high (80%) chance in 48 hours and high (90 %) chance in 5 days. If it further develops into a tropical storm, it will be named Ida.
We will continue to monitor its progress, although it is NOT expected to affect the Caribbean.
- A weak tropical wave in the Gulf of Mexico is showing minor signs of developing, although it is very close to land. It has a low (20%) chance in 48 hours and low (30%) chance in 5 days.
We will not monitor the progress of this system, as it will NOT pose a threat to the Caribbean.
- Another tropical wave, just off the coast of Africa is also showing signs of developing into a tropical cyclone within the next few days. It has a low (0%) chance in 48 hours and medium (40 %) chance in 5 days.
