Thursday Tropics Update

Active Systems:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane 
Danielle, located several hundred miles north-northwest of the 
Azores, and on Hurricane Earl, located a few hundred miles south of 

1. Eastern Tropical Atlantic: 
An area of low pressure located almost a thousand miles west of the 
Cabo Verde Islands continues to produce disorganized showers and 
thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear conducive for 
additional development of this system, and a tropical depression is 
likely to form within the next day or so while it moves westward to 
west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph over the central tropical 
Atlantic.  After that time, upper-level winds are forecast to become 
less conducive for development.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

2. West Coast of Africa:
A tropical wave currently located near the west coast of Africa is 
forecast to emerge into the eastern Atlantic later this morning.  
Environmental conditions appear conducive for some gradual 
development thereafter as the system moves west-northwestward over 
the eastern tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.
