BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – National Hurricane Center announced on Sunday that they are monitoring a tropical wave that has formed off the west coast of Africa.

At this time, the system is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the far eastern tropical Atlantic. However, environmental conditions are ripe this time of year for similar developments to steadily increase in strength and organization in the area.

The tropical wave is moving to west-northwest at 15-20 mph and could develop into a tropical depression by later this week, according to the Nationa Hurricane Center.

Experts are forecasting a 40-percent chance at further development in the next five days.
