Hurricane Nigel continues its trek through the central Atlantic. Computer models indicate it probably will not become a major hurricane before losing its tropical characteristics in colder waters late this week.
We continue to watch for tropical development in two regions of the Atlantic. One is east of Florida, where a low is expected to form in a couple of days. This feature has a low chance of becoming a tropical or subtropical depression, but it will bring heavy rain to portions of the southeast coast and the Mid-Atlantic states. And a strong wave is forecast to emerge off the African coast at any time. This wave has a high chance of becoming a depression as it moves westward or west-northwestward. We’ll keep an eye on it.
