Here’s a look at the National Hurricane Center’s (NHC) Atlantic tropical weather outlook for the next few days. The Virginia Water Central News Grouper posts these outlooks approximately weekly (depending on the level of weather activity) during the Atlantic tropical storm season (June 1-November 30).
As of July 31, 2017, at 8 a.m EDT, Tropical Storm Emily was moving over Florida and was predicted to weaken into a tropical depression as it crossed the Sunshine State. At the same time, a pre-tropical disturbance in the Atlantic Ocean about mid-way between Africa and South America was being given a one-percent chance of tropical cyclone formation within 48 hours. Shown below are the NHC’s two-day and five-day graphical tropical weather outlooks as of 8 a.m. EDT on July 31, accessed at http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/.
