The tropical wave is located above the East Atlantic Ocean. This is currently a group with unorganized rain and thunderstorms, but it could be more by next week.
This system moves west-northwest into the mid-Atlantic Ocean. There it will run to more favorable conditions for strengthening and organizing into a more robust system.
There is a 50 percent chance that the storm will turn into a tropical depression within two days. There is a 90 percent chance that the storm will turn into a tropical depression within the next five days.
Other systems in the Atlantic region have only a 10 percent chance of developing in the next five days
The third system is still in Africa. Long-term forecasts give this system a chance to form, but not until the middle or end of next week.
Developing multiple systems simultaneously is not uncommon this year. Mid-September is the peak of the hurricane season.
However, this hurricane season is more active than usual. The record-breaking 2005 hurricane is fast approaching. The following tropical storms were first recorded in their first letters: Cristobal, Edward, Fe, Gonzalo, Hannah, Isaiah, Josephine, Kyle, Laura, Marco, Nana, and Omar.
