    The depression already shows signs of showers and thunderstorms wrapping around the low level center, and it could become tropical storm Florence over the next 12 hours. A weak upper trough of low pressure extends south from the central Atlantic to just north of this wave, but it will be quickly kicked to the east Sunday night by a second and more impressive upper trough that is digging south through the central Atlantic. This second upper trough will draw the developing tropical cyclone more to the northwest over the next several days, then the trough will split, with the lion's share moving away to the east while leaving smaller pieces behind that could help to ventilate the system. We think the tropical cyclone will take a more westerly track later in the week as high pressure in the mid levels builds across the central Atlantic in the wake of the second upper trough. There is still a lot of African dust to the north of the wave, but despite that, it continues to produce showers and thunderstorms and continues to look more organized on satellite loops. Some global models track this feature as a hurricane on a westward course to the north of the Puerto Rico in about a week, and if it gets past the upper trough intact over the next several days, this is very likely to happen. It is not out of the question that it could be a major hurricane at that time.

    One other (seperate) feature associated with this tropical wave is a front running area of low pressure along 47 west. This feature should stay on a more westerly course toward the Lesser Antilles. It could end up as a developing tropical cyclone across the northwest Caribbean or close to south Florida next weekend.

    Looks like it's taking aim at Florida, and possibly the Gulf!

    Does it seem further N than usual? Remember that last year they mentioned the possibility of a hurricane blowing into NYC? I would think this would be the kind of placement needed for that to happen, although I hope it blows itself out into the Atlantic!

    I see the self-updating map now has it turning a bit northwards, so that could be interesting.

    The stage is set for the biggest hurricane so far this year. The actors know their parts. Very warm water from the central Atlantic to the Bahamas will play a big role. Another lead character is the existing westerly flow across a segment the central Atlantic. Its part in the play will be short as a big high takes center stage to the north. Factoring all these elements together, there is a strong likelihood that Tropical Depression 6 will be a Category 2 or 3 hurricane later this week. Just like a TV drama, the end of this story has yet to be revealed. Stayed tuned to AccuWeather.com for the latest episode.

    DK, as a weather nut and avid cloud watcher, I look forward to your hurricane and tornado watch/warnings. Been hooked since my father encouraged my sister and I to watch the beautiful storms at sea east of Miami. The lightning always fascinated me. Meteorology in college just clinched it. With unlimited skies on the plains of Colorado, I love watching the approaching storms. Also, knowing the hurricane's power up front and personal for many years, I have a healthy respect for the storms.

    Thank you and Pharlap for your attention to the details and in keeping us updated on the weather.

    BTW, I have marked as one of my favorites, my local radar on AccuWeather. I can quickly go to the site and get my local radar out of Goodland, Kansas NOAA station. It certainly helps when I see the skyline here and need to know how quickly to feed the livestock and take cover....

    Also, for those of you in the paths of potential hurricanes, September and October have always been the most active months of activity.

    I couldn't edit the title of this to reflect the naming of the storm, so I started a new thread. Hope that's ok with everyone.
