Tropical storm develops in the Atlantic while a wave aims for Florida

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

IRELAND could suffer a storm even stronger than Ophelia next month, if weather experts in the USA is to be believed.

Storm coverage will continue to increase to 60 percent for tomorrow afternoon. For instance, the GFS forecast for Friday morning 9/7 is showing max winds of 71kts, while the Euro forecast is showing max winds of 41kts or a weak Tropical Storm.

Southeast Florida could see as much as 3 inches of rain locally through Monday. Some of the storms could become strong with gusty winds and frequent lightning. As a result, I would expect these modeled surf heights to change from day to day in the near term, perhaps quite significantly.

An area of broad low pressure is now moving through the Northern Gulf, expected to increase the chance for rain and thunderstorms across the Brazos Valley Sunday, Labor Day Monday, and Tuesday. The coverage of storms will increase to 70 percent with high temperatures falling back into the middle to upper 80s for most locations.

The next named storm in the Atlantic basin will be called Florence. It is no threat to the U.S.

Once it's in the Gulf, there is a low chance of tropical development, as it pulls away from Florida.

The tropical wave, a large area of cloudiness and thunderstorms across the northeastern Caribbean Sea, is forecast to move westward to west-northwestward, the hurricane center said Thursday.

The National Hurricane Center is keeping an eye on a wave in the Bahamas that could keep your Labor Day weekend in South Florida on the wet side - but significant development is not expected.

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.
