Tropical Wave

Post of NHC TWO was deleted.

Entire NHC Article/Advisory Reposting: Don't do it. The main page has direct links to most of the advisories and reposting them just tends to clutter the site. Your repost is likely to be edited down or graveyarded depending on how much content other than the article/advisory is there. If you quote a specific part of an advisory or article, reposting that excerpt, with discussion, is fine. The TWO is available on the Main Page as a drop-down item.

Did you make this so because you think this wave will develop Ed?

I keep hearing about the westward moving tropical wave but I cannot tell if there is anything to it or not.
It isn't like the TWO to mention something that they feel has no possibilities I suppose, but I really wasn't sure. And, was looking for more input.

Shear is there but not as high as it has been other years that I can recall.

The ITZ is pretty active though even if nothing is developing.

No, I don't believe that the wave has much chance to develop. Note that the TWO will mention waves that may or may not develop - but the NHC will hint at their thoughts, one way or the other, in the bulletin itself. Sometimes the NHC will mention something that may look impressive on satellite imagery but really has little chance to develop simply to alleviate hype and reassure folks that its nothing to be concerned about.

My point was to enphasize that CFHC discourages reposting NHC bulletins/advisories/forecasts since they are always available as drop-down messages from the top of the Main Page.

DC, Use the graphical link on the TWO at the top of the main page to see a percent probability for development of suspect areas.
