Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Fri Aug 28 2020

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The Weather Prediction Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Depression Laura, located inland over northeastern Arkansas.

1. A tropical wave located about 900 miles east of the Windward 
Islands is producing an area of showers and thunderstorms.  Some 
gradual development of this system is possible during the next 
several days while it moves westward at about 15 mph toward the 
eastern Caribbean islands.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.

2. Another tropical wave is located over the eastern Atlantic Ocean 
just west of the Cabo Verde Islands. The northern part of this 
wave, which should move rapidly westward over the central 
Atlantic during the next few days, is not forecast to develop as it 
is expected to remain in unfavorable environmental conditions.  
However, the southern part of the wave is expected to be nearly 
stationary south of the Cabo Verde Islands for the next several 
days, and some development of this system is possible early next 
week when it begins to move slowly westward over the eastern and 
central tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.
