Forecasters Warn: Storm In Atlantic Basin "Could Form Into Hurricane Over Weekend"

The 2021 Atlantic hurricane season is heating up and showing no signs of slowing down. A tropical wave in the Eastern Atlantic is likely to develop in the next couple of days and could form into a tropical storm by the weekend.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) reports Wednesday a disturbance located a few hundred miles south-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands is becoming more organized.

"Environmental conditions are expected to remain conducive for development, and a tropical depression is likely to form within the next couple of days. NHC said that this system is expected to move westward to west-northwestward across the tropical Atlantic during the next several days," NHC said.

The weather agency gives the collection of showers and thunderstorms an 80% of development over the next 48 hours and a 90% chance over the next five days.
