Today in the Tropics

Tracking Gert and Katia that are expected to dissipate in the next day or so in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Wave forecast to move off the coast of Africa has a medium chance to form once it moves near the Cape Verde Islands.

Tropical wave (Invest 95L) located a few hundred miles Southwest of the Cape Verde Islands has a high chance to form into a depression or storm midweek. It could impact the Lesser Antilles late weekend. However, track changes are likely since it has not developed yet.

Scenario 1: Strong high pressure in the Atlantic could help steer this system farther West and possibly threaten parts of the Lesser Antilles.

Scenario 2: Weaker high pressure could help curve system more North across the Central and Western Atlantic.

Have a great Labor Day South Florida and make it a safe one!
