Tropical development possible in the Atlantic this week

Tropical Update: Invest 94-L has a medium chance of tropical development

There could be a stray afternoon storm, but most locations will be dry and if there is a storm, it will be ending in time for all those firework shows across the area this evening.

The system, named Invest 94L, is located about 800 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands and is now moving westward and/or west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph across the tropical Atlantic. Our Tropical Updates always air at:21 after the hour.

"In terms of the Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the combined strength and duration of tropical storms and hurricanes, activity in the Atlantic basin so far in 2017 is above normal", states a monthly tropical weather summary for June. The chances that it forms into a depression within 48 hours stood at 30 percent, as of the 2 p.m., advisory.

In the Atlantic Ocean, a tropical wave off the coast of Africa has a 40% chance for development in the next 3-5 days. We may have to start paying attention to those heat index values as they could begin to approach the lower 100s, which would be advisory criteria for Central Alabama.

It should continue moving in that direction throughout the rest of the week, the NHC said.

Forecasters said the appearance of the storm hasn't changed much.
