The large wave area in the Central Atlantic was designated 97L today.
This GFS and Euro models for the wave in the Atlantic has been persistently moving toward the US east coast, but particularly Florida, Gulf, and South Carolina for the past several days. And the trend continues this morning. With the latest 6z GFS bringing it in near Key West on August 27 after it traverses the northern Caribbean.
Since it may travel over the islands it may be weakened by then.
The euro isn't solid on development (destroys it based on land interaction), so another weak system crossing the Atlantic westward seems the most likely at the moment, and will be one to watch for late next week, but by no means is it a definite danger to Florida. Those in the Caribbean will want to watch it very closely however.
It's something to monitor, but without a developed system you have to avoid the hype, and it seems more likely that the system will head further westward and may be able to enter the Gulf or stay in the Caribbean as based on some of the other models.
