We are tracking yet another tropical wave in the Atlantic that has an 80% chance of strengthening into a tropical depression or tropical storm within the next 48 hours. If it develops into a tropical storm, this would add yet another record to this busy 2020 hurricane season....becoming the earliest "I" named storm on record, breaking the record set by Hurricane Irene in 2005-- which is the busiest Atlantic Hurricane Season to date.
The Saharan Dust Layer will be advancing from the north, but at the moment it looks like the system has enough of moisture to sustain itself and potentially organize. There is some wind shear nearby-- but as the system moves westward, the environment will become conducive for development.
Regardless of whether or not the system develops, models are indicating that it will approach the Leeward Islands. While this system is DAYS away from land.... some long range models bring the storm north of Puerto Rico....
