Active time in Atlantic
The United States-based National Hurricane Center has noted several areas of activity in their tropical weather outlook.
In an update on their website, they continue to issues updates on Hurricane Dorian, however there are three other areas of disturbance in the Atlantic Ocean.
A tropical wave located several hundred miles east of the island chain, is producing disorganised showers and thunderstorms. Development of this system will be slow to occur while it moves slowly northwestward during the next few days. The chances of this wave developing are low at this time, only ten per cent.
The remnants of Tropical Storm Gabrielle, are producing an area of showers and thunderstorms to the north of its centre. Conditions are expected to become increasingly conducive for regeneration, and it is likely to become a tropical storm again within the next day or so.
The final area of interest is a low pressure system just west of the Cabo Verde Islands. It is producing a small area of disorganised showers and thunderstorms.
Very little development is expected for the next couple of days, but environmental conditions are expected to become favourable for a tropical depression to form early next week while the system moves westward across the tropical Atlantic Ocean. (NATIONNEWS)
