TRACKING THE TROPICS
Meantime, the CBS4 Storm Team is tracking two areas in the Tropics.
The wave we will be watching closely is expected to move off the West coast of Africa later Thursday.
The National Hurricane Center is giving this wave a medium potential of development over the next 5 days. Environmental conditions appear somewhat conducive for gradual development as it moves WNW at 15 mph and a tropical depression could form over the Eastern Atlantic early next week.
