NHC: Forecasters continue to monitor tropical wave in Atlantic

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is tracking a tropical wave that formed hundreds of miles off the coast of the Windward Islands on Monday.

They said that the tropical wave is producing disorganized showers and a few thunderstorms. Further development is possible, as it has a 20 percent chance of formation over the next two to five days. By Thursday though, it will hit upper-level winds and become less conducive for further organization.

Whenever it comes, the next named storm will be ‘Danny.’
