Tracking The Tropics
We are monitoring two tropical waves for the potential for development. The first wave is bringing rain to Puerto Rico and is not likely to develop, even over the long term. The second tropical wave is in the Eastern Atlantic, south of the Cabo Verde islands. This wave is not likely to develop this week, but as is moves westward, long term forecast models show it developing as it reaches the Virgin Islands. We will keep you updated.
