The term "potential tropical cyclone" refers to a tropical disturbance that is not yet a tropical depression/storm but will likely bring watch-or-warning-worthy conditions to an area in the near future. The first is Potential Tropical Cyclone Six off the west African coast.

Those looking to spend Labor Day weekend outside should expect afternoon showers to start at about noon Saturday, said National Weather Service meteorologist Tony Hurt.

The effect on South Florida will be an increase in rain with some gusty downpours, especially late in the Labor Day weekend.

Local weather conditions are being influenced by a tropical wave that is now over the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Hispaniola.

Regardless of development, this system could produce heavy rainfall across portions of Hispaniola, the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos Islands, and Florida into early next week.

It brought with it wave heights of 17.81 metres, top gusts of 191 km/h and sustained winds (10-minute mean) of 111km/h when it hit the country in October.

Tropical Storm Warnings are now in place for the Cabo Verde Islands as the threat for strong winds and heavy rain will likely impact the islands within the next 24 hours or so.

Rain over the USVI and a storm forming near Africa.

Florence would be the season's sixth named storm. For instance, the GFS forecast for Friday morning 9/7 is showing max winds of 71kts, while the Euro forecast is showing max winds of 41kts or a weak Tropical Storm.

But a separate circulation center closer to the Azores is what's forecast to send the potential tropical cyclone near the Cabo Verde Islands northwest into the Central Atlantic, said AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski.
