TAMPA, Fla.—It’s still hurricane season through the end of the month and a tropical wave hundreds of miles east of the Lesser Antilles is a reminder of that.
National Weather Service-Tampa Meteorologist Rodney Wynn said it's fairly common for storms to form this time of year.
Forecasters showed the wave was producing some disorganized thunderstorms and showers, but unfavorable environmental conditions could keep this system from developing over the next few days.
The tropical wave has a 30 percent chance of development over the next five days.
Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center said the tropical wave could develop into something stronger by the middle of next week.
Wynn says the models show that if it does develop into something stronger it didn't look like it would be a threat to Florida.
