Tropical Wave Could Mean A Wet & Windy Holiday Weekend For South Florida

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

The tropical Atlantic Ocean, which had been silent, continues to show new signs of life.

Tropical Depression Six strengthened and became Tropical Storm "Florence" early Saturday morning. "But we don't see, at this time, any tropical cyclone formation". It remains disorganized, and the model forecasts do not indicate much development to occur.

Expect an onshore flow with increasing rain chances across Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia as the Labor Day weekend continues.

Once the system crosses the Florida Peninsula and emerges into the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, the atmospheric pattern appears more favorable, and some organization is possible.

One-week rainfall forecast valid from Friday morning through next Friday morning. Both tropical storms Debby and Ernesto formed well off-shore in early August, only affecting trade routes located within the north Atlantic.

The storm will bring tropical storm conditions to the Cape Verde Islands as it moves over the open Atlantic.

Another update will be released on Tropical Storm Florence at 5pm. At least through the middle of next week, it is not a threat to land.

Meanwhile, a tropical wave near Hispaniola is moving northwesterly toward the Bahamas.

There's been an uptick in rumors that a major hurricane could strike our area next week, but that's not what the National Hurricane Center is forecasting.

We've certainly been getting a proper taste of the seasons over the past year, with Storm Ophelia last autumn, the Beast from the East and Storm Emma in the winter/spring and sizzling temperatures and drought in the summer.

Avila said there is a 40 percent chance that the wave could form into a depression in the central Gulf of Mexico, sometime after the weekend.

Hurricane season ends November 30, but September 10 is historically the "peak" day for storm activity in the Atlantic. Fortunately, future-Florence's forecast track does not look anything like Irma's.
