  • Satellite image shows shows potential storm 'stronger than Ophelia' heading for Ireland

Outer rain bands are affecting southern sections of the Cabo Verde Islands.

On the forecast track, the depression will be passing just west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands Friday night and Saturday morning.

At this time, the potential tropical cyclone is not expected to impact the United States.

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.

The system is expected to become a tropical storm late Thursday or Friday, and become a hurricane by Sunday. Strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Potential Tropical Cyclone 6 is expected to become a tropical storm during the next day or so.

Stay tuned to Space Coast Daily this Labor Day weekend for information regarding these tropical systems and your local forecasts.




It is still too early for specific details like: who will see the heaviest rain or whether it actually forms into a named system.

Its expected to dissipate somewhere west of the Gulf of Mexico.

If this moves into the Gulf of Mexico, we may have to watch it for potential tropical development as well.

An area of disturbed weather is associated with a tropical wave is now sitting over Hispañola.

We are still seeing the GFS bring this up to hurricane strength while the Euro tops this out at tropical storm strength. Both ingredients would aid in tropical cyclone development, but it is still too early to tell if this wave will continue to strengthen into a tropical system.

Hurricane season ends November 30, but September 10 is historically the "peak" day for storm activity in the Atlantic.
