The National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, Florida, is tracking a tropical wave over the Atlantic that could form into a tropical cyclone this week. 

"NHC is monitoring a tropical wave over the open Atlantic for possible development over the next few days. No impacts to South Florida are expected at this time. This is a reminder that we are in hurricane season. Make sure your hurricane plan is in order," NHC said. 

The disturbance, dubbed Invest 95L, is located a couple of hundred miles south-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. With a 40%-60% chance of forming into a tropical depression over the next few days. The directional heading of the wave is westward across the tropical Atlantic Ocean.

Spaghetti models are showing Invest 95L could track west-northwestward into the Caribbean. 

So far, 2020 has been an extremely active hurricane season, which goes through November 30. Last week, the East Coast of the US was walloped by Hurricane Isaias.

Josephine will be the next named storm in the Atlantic.
