The tropics are quieter now than the past couple of weeks. We no longer have any active tropical storms or hurricanes. There are just two areas of possible development that are far away from the United States.

  1. A wave just off the coast of Africa will be moving Northwest with slow development. Chance of development: 0% over 48 hours and 20% over 5 days.

2. Another wave is located halfway in between Africa and the Windward Islands. The system is becoming better organized and could become a tropical depression by the end of the week as it moves Northwest. Chance of development: 30% over 48 hours and 40% over 5 days.
