“Omar”, 3 other Systems Being Monitored


Florida’s National Hurricane Center is monitoring four tropical systems, including Tropical Depression Omar and two systems likely to become named storms.

In its advisory posted today, the NHC said two systems currently located off the west coast of Africa have a 90 percent and 70 percent chance respectively to form in the next five days.

It said the tropical wave with the 90 percent formation chance is expected to gradually develop “while it moves westward to west-northwestward, and a tropical depression is likely to form late this weekend or early next week when the system reaches the central tropical Atlantic.”
