LOW-END CHANCE OF TROPICAL DEVELOPMENT IN BAY OF CAMPECHE… The National Hurricane Center indicates a tropical wave moving through the western Caribbean Sea has a 30% chance of becoming a tropical storm once the system. This system will likely never come close to south Alabama or northwest Florida. From NHC: “The northern portion of a tropical wave is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms over northeastern Honduras and the western Caribbean Sea. This system is forecast to emerge over the southern Bay of Campeche on Saturday. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive to support some gradual development of this disturbance before it moves over mainland Mexico early next week.”

HURRICANE LARRY MOVING TOWARD NEWFOUNDLAND… Hurricane Larry has now passed Bermuda and is racing northeast across the open waters of the northern Atlantic Ocean. Larry will likely cause considerable impacts to Newfoundland in Canada tonight into early tomorrow morning. The Canadian Hurricane Centre has issued a Hurricane Warning from Arnold’s Cove to Jones Harbour, Newfoundland.

SEPARATE TROPICAL WAVE TO MOVE OFF AFRICAN COAST… A tropical wave currently situated over western Africa will move into the far eastern part of the Atlantic Ocean near the Cabo Verde Islands this weekend. There is a growing chance this system will become a tropical storm this weekend or early next week. The storm is expected to turn to the northwest and ultimately move out to sea. From NHC: “A strong tropical wave is expected to emerge off of the west coast of Africa Saturday. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development thereafter, and a tropical depression could form late this weekend or early next week as it moves west-northwestward over the far eastern Atlantic near the Cabo Verde Islands.”
