Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 PM EDT Sun Aug 9 2020

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

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave located a 
few hundred miles south-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands continue 
to show signs of organization.  However, recent satellite-derived 
wind data indicates that the circulation remains elongated.  
Environmental conditions appear conducive enough to support 
additional development of this system, and a tropical depression 
could form during the next few days while it moves generally 
westward at 15 mph across the tropical Atlantic.  Conditions are 
likely to become less conducive for development late this week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.
