Two More Systems to Watch Over the Atlantic

NASA Worldview

As parts of Louisana continues to reel from Hurricane Laura, there are two other areas of low pressure over the Atlantic Ocean that are worth watching.

The first is located about 950 kilometres east of the Windward Islands. This feature is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. There is the potential for some development over the next few days. Even if no development occurs, gusty winds and heavy rain is likely across portions of the Windward and Leeward Islands on Sunday. Over the next five days, this low will move into the Caribbean Sea.

Another tropical wave is located southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. This system is expected to move very slowly for the next several days. It will gradually move into an environment that is conducive for some development early next week. This low will continue its westward track over the open Atlantic over the next few days.

The next named storms will be Nana and Omar.
