With Labor Day so close and the models showing storms ahead people seem particularly nervous this year after the assault of storms in the last two years. Looking around the Space Coast of Florida the fears look justified with at least a few blue tarped roofs in most neighborhoods, occasional business signs still blown out and general disrepair in some areas hit hard last year.
The Atlantic tropics are coming back to life too.
A storm is rolling off Africa that looks like it should pull together as it couples up with the Atlantic. It has been declared as Tropical Depression Six. Looks like it may become a hurricane, probably affect the Southern Cabo Verde Islands. Getting harder to tell what it will do after that. A few models take it on a long adventure over much of the Atlantic.
There is also a waves to watch approaching Cuba that could potentially effect Florida, Louisiana or Texas. Below is the current Two-Day Tropical Outlook from National Weather Service.
Compared to some years it's not looking too bad for our somewhat typical holiday weekend of hurricane activity. The storm trying to form from the tropical wave near Hispanola, doesn't have much model support to become something stronger but looks gamely. Maybe good to prepare for heavy precipitation in Cuba, Florida and along the gulf coast, including Texas.
