NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Thu Aug 30 2018
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
Satellite images and surface observations indicate that a
well-defined low pressure system is located just off the west coast
of Senegal, Africa. Environmental conditions are favorable for a
tropical depression or a tropical storm to form as the disturbance
moves westward or west-northwestward at about 15 mph near the Cabo
Verde Islands during the next day or two. This system is expected to
bring heavy rains and strong gusty winds to the Cabo Verde Islands
on Friday and Saturday, and if the current development trend
continues, Tropical Storm Watches or Warnings will likely be
required for these islands later today. Interests on the Cabo
Verde Islands should continue to closely monitor the progress of
this developing disturbance.
1. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.
