Tropical wave could make for wet Labor Day

A tropical wave could move toward South Florida from the southeast at the end of the Labor Day weekend, increasing our rain chances.

As of Friday morning, the tropical wave is located near Hispaniola but is not very organized.

The models have really backed off of any development, and it is basically a mass of showers and storms at the moment.

The National Hurricane Center has given it a 20 percent chance of development after it reaches the eastern Gulf of Mexico at the beginning of next week.

In the meantime, its impact on Florida is still unclear. However, it does look like it will increase our rain chances Monday into Tuesday.

So, while it does not appear that we will be dealing with a developed storm of any kind, we could see a more rainfall at the very end of the holiday weekend and into the beginning of next week.

Some rain is already in the forecast for the entire holiday weekend that is unrelated to the tropical wave.
