Now Two Tropical Waves Tracking Across the Atlantic

Now Two Tropical Waves Tracking Across the Atlantic

It's much too soon to say if either will affect the U.S.

Hurricane hunters investigated the area Monday afternoon and found a low-level closed circle circulation, maximum sustained winds at 40 miles per hour, moving west at 17 miles per hour.

The storm was heading in the general direction of Hawaii, but forecasters said it is expected to lose strength in the coming days.

Even if no cyclone forms, the system is expected to dump heavy rain on the Lesser Antilles. After that time, less favorable upper-level winds are expected to hinder additional development.

The second tropical wave is located to the east of Invest 95L, or about 800 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands off Africa's west coast.

It has a 20 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression over the next five days.

Although this system is close to dry air, some slow development is possible over the next few days, according to National Hurricane Center forecaster Dan Brown.

Aircraft flew into the storm earlier Monday and determined the system was organized enough to be a tropical storm.

Hurricane Fernanda remains in the Eastern Pacific and is now located an estimated 1645 miles ESE of Hilo, Hawaiʻi.
