ORLANDO, Fla. — There are signs that tropical development is increasing across the Atlantic Basin this weekend.


The main area that Severe Weather Center 9 is watching is a tropical wave in the central Atlantic.

By next week, meteorologist George Waldenberger said this has a chance of becoming a tropical depression.

Either way, he said this will mean watching the further development and ultimate track into Labor Day weekend and beyond.

Waldenberger said there is a lot of uncertainty and a long time to watch, so be sure to stay updated.
