Tracking the Tropics: Watching the waves

CREATED Aug. 28, 2013 - UPDATED: Aug. 28, 2013

CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A tropical wave located east of the Lesser Antilles remains unimpressive as the thunderstorm activity associated with it remains limited.  Over the weekend, as it continues to move west, conditions could become a bit more favorable.  It has a 20% chance of further development, that according to the National Hurricane Center.

A wave coming off the coast of Africa on Friday could move into an area where environmental conditions are favorable for development.  This wave, still over the African continent has been given about a 20% chance for development over the next five days.
