On average, the sixth named storm forms on September 6.

Its not abnormal to see the wave at this time of year, especially as we enter the peak of what has been a quiet hurricane season so far.

A tropical wave located north of Haiti is producing considerable cloudiness, rain, and thunderstorms across Hispaniola to the Turks & Caicos Islands. Satellite photos indicate quite a bit of shower and thundershower activity associated with this wave. However, the weather service doesnt believe the tropical wave poses a threat to the region because its so disorganized.

Tropical moisture will increase rainfall totals for Florida this weekend.

A tropical storm has formed in the eastern Atlantic near the Cabo Verde Islands. The National Hurricane Center introduced this product past year to accommodate systems that develop and intensify near land. Once there, environmental conditions could become slightly more favorable for an area of surface low pressure to form. It is moving to the west-northwest at 14 miles per hour. Tropical Storm Warnings remain in effect for portions of the Cabo Verde Islands, where heavy rain and strong winds are expected through tomorrow.

The National Hurricane Center is now predicting a 10 percent chance that this tropical wave develops into a tropical depression or tropical storm as it moves away from Tampa Bay toward the central Gulf Coast.

Seven-day forecast from the ECMWF.

Along with more consistency among other forecast models, it is looking more like this tropical wave moves out of the Caribbean and toward the Florida straights over the Labor Day Weekend.

Forecasts expect the system to move west-northwest, but it is not expected to develop immediately due to strong upper-level winds in the area.
