Tropical wave could rain on your Labor Day holiday; Florence forming?

Satellite image shows shows potential storm 'stronger than Ophelia' heading for Ireland

Outer rain bands are affecting southern sections of the Cabo Verde Islands.

Florence will not be a hurricane at this time but will bring rain as it continues to travel in the Atlantic to the west-northwest. Both tropical storms Debby and Ernesto formed well off-shore in early August, only affecting trade routes located within the north Atlantic.

It brought with it wave heights of 17.81 metres, top gusts of 191 km/h and sustained winds (10-minute mean) of 111km/h when it hit the country in October.

We will report any weather that could impact our area, but don't see any need to address rain from Tropical Storm Florence unless it turns risky.

Tropical depression six has now strengthened into Tropical Storm Florence. Due to high wind shear and its proximity to land, little development is expected over the weekend.

Hospital expecting more patients from New Mexico bus crash
Passengers tried to climb out the bus windows and bystanders grabbed ladders from their vehicles to try to rescue them, he said. All but six people on the bus were taken to area hospitals, said Wilson, who said the death toll was expected to rise.

Finally, while the tropical wave now over the Lesser Antilles is showing some increase in shower and thundershower activity, immediate tropical development is extremely unlikely due to high levels of wind shear.

This storm has a 90% chance of development in the next five days, though because the environmental conditions are so favorable, this may become Tropical Storm Florence before the week is over.

If the wave makes it into the Gulf of Mexico, it will have plenty of warm water to "feast on", said Jeff Masters, co-founder of Weather Underground.

Its expected to dissipate somewhere west of the Gulf of Mexico.

A year ago, Irma had rapidly intensified from a tropical storm to a Category 3 hurricane way out in the far eastern Atlantic. There are a couple of things that will need to be monitored, however, over the next few days. While formation of a tropical system is very low, enhanced rainfall across the state is likely for early next week.
