Low pressure system strengthening chance very high says Hurricane Center

#Miami, Florida – Thursday August 30, 2018 – Disorganized showers and thunderstorms moving off the coast of Senegal are associated with a strong tropical wave and broad area of low pressure. 

A more well-defined low pressure system is forecast to form between Senegal and the Cabo Verde Islands later today after the tropical wave moves offshore over the far eastern Atlantic Ocean, and the low is likely to become a Tropical Depression by the weekend while moving westward or west-northwestward at about 15 mph.

This system is expected to bring heavy rains and gusty winds to the Cabo Verde Islands on Friday and Saturday, and interests on the islands should monitor the progress of this disturbance.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…60 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days…high…80 percent.
