Forecasters Now Watching Another Tropical Wave in the Atlantic

As Hurricane Fiona moves into the open Atlantic as a Category 3 storm, forecasters are now watching another system that could make its way into the Caribbean Sea in the coming days.

A tropical wave is currently several hundred miles east of the Windward Islands, and has a 70% chance of development over the next five days.

Still too early to pinpoint its exact track, but forecasters say it could enter the Gulf of Mexico sometime next week.
