August 16: Tropical Activity Detected!

The National Weather Service National Hurricane Center (NWS NHC) is currently investigating a tropical wave that originated near the Cape Verde region off western Africa:

I’ll be closely monitoring the progress of this tropical activity as it crosses the Atlantic. For now, it’s modeled with a general heading towards the Lesser Antilles with low confidence in mid-to-long range behavior. With that said, a New Jersey or even US impact assessment is not possible at this time. Let’s take this day by day until more organization and a better handle on track is established. Be safe! JC
