Tropical Storm Miriam Forecast to Miss Hawai'i

Flooding near Hilo Hawaii Friday

Given the high chances that this system could bring tropical storm conditions to a portion of the southern Cabo Verde Islands, advisories have been initiated on Potential Tropical Cyclone Six. The system is expected to continue moving west and northwestward and into the Gulf of Mexico during the next several days.

The system far offshore is likely to be Hurricane Florence, which is just a strong tropical wave near Africa this morning.

Storm Ophelia brought the country to a standstill a year ago as average wind speeds of between 65 and 80km/h with some gusts of 110 to 130km/h struck the emerald isle.

According to Met Éireann, however, reports of a tropical storm headed Ireland's way in the coming weeks are somewhat premature, for the time being at least and likely to be wide of the mark.

Of more immediate concern to South Florida is whether Labor Day weekend will be a washout. This will increase rain chances for the state late this weekend or early next week.

The NHC is showing no tropical development near Florida over the next five days, but a tropical wave near Puerto Rico will be making its way west late this week.

The area of low pressure was located off the west African coast.

The storm has gained a little more strength and is expected to move into the Central Pacific Basin (crossing 140 W) later today.
