Tropical wave to dampen Labor Day plans

Satellite image shows shows potential storm 'stronger than Ophelia' heading for Ireland

Two more tropical waves that are forecast to leave the coast of Africa next week likely will follow the same path.

The area of low pressure was located off the west African coast.

The Atlantic Hurricane Season officially began on June 1, and it seemed that it would be an extra active season since Subtropical Storm Alberto formed in late May (a full week and a half before the official start of the season). Regardless, even though this tropical wave will bring a higher chance of rain through the beginning of next week it won't be all that different from the types of storms we have seen recently.

Tropical moisture will increase rainfall totals for Florida this weekend.

The National Hurricane Center is giving it a 10 percent chance of developing into at least a tropical depression in the next five days in the Gulf. However, the weather service doesnt believe the tropical wave poses a threat to the region because its so disorganized.

The initial reports stemmed from a satellite image posted online, an image depicting a tropical storm, reportedly "stronger than Ophelia", that was set for the Northern Atlantic.




The government of the Cabo Verde Islands issued tropical storm warnings for Santiago, Fogo and Brava. It is moving to the west-northwest at 14 miles per hour.

A system southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands is expected to become Florence, the season's sixth named storm.

The first is a tropical wave over the Caribbean that has the potential to move into the Gulf of Mexico by the middle of next week. Afternoon storm chances will increase midday across inland areas.

"Strong upper-level winds are expected to prevent any significant development of this system during the next several days, " the hurricane center said.

Forecasters also will be watching for the storm-inciting Madden-Julian Oscillation, or MJO, in the coming weeks as it makes its way into the Atlantic.
