The National Hurricane Center now has a 70% chance for tropical development with that wave in the eastern Atlantic. This is telling me that the forecast models are picking up on this system and are in agreement with this system becoming tropical very soon. The east coast of the United States will need to be on alert as this system continues to push West.

The tropical activity might be picking up by the end of the weekend and early next week. A tropical wave just off the coast of west Africa will be moving into a favorable environment and should start to take shape and possibly become the second named tropical storm of the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season (Bertha)
