The Tropics are Heating Up

The 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season got off to a hot start, then stalled due to the Saharan dust storm and is now rekindling.
A tropical wave is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms over western Cuba, the northwestern Bahamas,
southern Florida, and the adjacent Atlantic and Caribbean waters.

Gradual development of this system is possible while it moves west-northwestward during the next few days.

This system is expected to move over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico later today, the central Gulf on Wednesday, and the
northwestern Gulf on Thursday and Friday.

An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system this afternoon, if necessary.
