Tropical Wave Watch

With the East Coast of the United States breathing a sigh of relief after Hurricane Bill moved on north, finally making landfall in Newfoundland, Canada  as a weak Category 1 hurricane on August 23, attention is now turning to a new tropical wave in the Atlantic. The National Hurricane Center this morning said there is a high chance (>50 percent) of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.   It said upper level winds are forecast to become more conducive for development during the next day or so as the system, currently centered about 300 miles northeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico, moves west-northwestward around 20 miles per hour. We’ll be monitoring its development. Check out I.I.I. facts and stats on hurricanes.
