We do dry out slightly going into Labor Day Weekend

We do dry out slightly going into Labor Day Weekend

The system is expected to become a tropical storm late Thursday or Friday, and become a hurricane by Sunday.

The National Hurricane Center is now predicting a 10 percent chance that this tropical wave develops into a tropical depression or tropical storm as it moves away from Tampa Bay toward the central Gulf Coast.

There are also some signs that a tropical wave east of the Windward Islands could develop into a depression or storm near Florida early next week. The MJO is a global player in the tropics - an eastward moving grouping of clouds, showers and winds that traverses the planet and returns to its starting point in 30 to 60 days.

This will lead to an increase in rip currents along with posing a hazard to small craft.

The next named Atlantic storm would be Florence.

Potential Tropical Cyclone Six continues to slowly organize in the eastern Atlantic and is on track to become a tropical storm later Friday.

The Atlantic hurricane season has been relatively quiet, but it looks like that is about to change.

The exact timing of when the best chance of rain will arrive will depend on how quickly this system moves out of the Caribbean and into the Gulf of Mexico.

Stay tuned to Space Coast Daily this Labor Day weekend for information regarding these tropical systems and your local forecasts.

Along with more consistency among other forecast models, it is looking more like this tropical wave moves out of the Caribbean and toward the Florida straights over the Labor Day Weekend. But shear is forecast to decrease in the weeks ahead, leaving open the possibility for more powerful storms.

Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30.

The name after Florence is Gordon. The Accumulated Cyclone Energy - a measure of the strength and longevity of a storm - is 17.5 this season when the normal is 28.7.
