NHC monitoring tropical wave in the tropical Atlantic


    The National Hurricane Centre is monitoring a tropical wave located over the eastern tropical Atlantic.

    It says however that this system has a near zero chance of formation in the next 48 hours, and a low (20%) chance of formation in the next five days.

    This wave is currently producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms in the Atlantic.

    The NHC says environmental conditions could become conducive for gradual development by early next week, as the disturbance moves westward at around 15 mph over the tropical Atlantic.
