800 AM EDT Fri Aug 21 2020
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Depression Thirteen, located a couple of hundred miles east of the
northern Leeward Islands, and on Tropical Depression Fourteen,
located just offshore the northeastern coast of Honduras.
1. A tropical wave located just off of the west coast of Africa is
producing a large area of disorganized showers and a few
thunderstorms. This wave is expected to move farther offshore
over the far eastern tropical Atlantic today. Conditions are
expected to be conducive for some development over the next few
days, and the system could become a tropical depression before
environmental conditions become less favorable for development
early next week. This system is forecast to move west-northwestward
at 15 to 20 mph across the eastern tropical Atlantic, and
regardless of development it will likely bring gusty winds across
portions of the Cabo Verde Islands this weekend, as well as heavy
rains that could cause flooding.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.
