HOLT, Fla., July 23, 2020—A new tropical wave has emerged off the coast of Africa.
It is expected to move westward across the Atlantic Ocean during the next several days.
Some development of this system is possible early next week when it reaches the western tropical Atlantic.
Formation chance through the next five days is 30 percent.
Tropical Depression Eight is moving west-northwest near 8 mph toward the Texas Coast.
Hurricane Hunter aircraft are investigating the storm and the NHC is expecting data to indicate TD8 has become Tropical Storm Hanna.
Tropical storm warnings have been posted along parts of the Texas coast in preparation for a landfall Saturday, according to the NHC.
Tropical Storm Gonzalo is powering west toward the Windward Islands at 13 mph.
Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph and strengthening is forecast during the next day or two.
Gonzalo is still expected to become a hurricane before reaching the islands in the next 36-to-48 hours; however, weakening is expected after the storm moves into the Caribbean Sea.
Because of an ingestion of dry air once it reaches the Caribbean, weather models are beginning to agree that Gonzalo will dissipate early next week.
