Longford Weather Alert: Hurricane season is back with a possible storm 'as strong as Ophelia'

Potential tropical cyclone Six is expected to continue moving in this direction with a very gradual turn toward the northwest.

The Longford Leader will be keeping an eye on the weather in the coming weeks to see how things progress.

Potential Tropical Cyclone Six - located about 135 miles southeast of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands in the eastern Atlantic Ocean - is expected to become a tropical storm Friday and a hurricane by the middle of next week, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The system that requires a closer look is a second tropical wave forecast to push off the African coast around Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.

However, by Sunday evening into Labor Day, this wave will reach the Florida peninsula and bring breezy conditions and plenty of rain.

Forecasters give it less than a 10 percent chance of development, but it could regenerate once it enters the Gulf of Mexico early next week before dissipating once again.
