Caribbean tropical wave given near zero percent chance to develop this week
An area of thunderstorms south of the Dominican Republic is not likely to develop at all in the next five days, according to the national hurricane center. Upper level winds are preventing the tropical wave from getting any better organized. The National Hurricane Center says its chances of becoming a tropical depression are near zero percent.
A low-pressure area off the coast of Africa, southeast of the Cape Verde islands, has a higher chance of developing in the next few days, as it moves west-northwestward to northwestward into the central tropical Atlantic.
