A tropical wave, with the possibility of becoming Tropical Storm Humberto, has Florida in its trajectory as it descends upon the Bahamas, according to the National Hurricane Center.

This wave was originally expected to be near tropical depression strength by now, but the hurricane center has consistently downgraded its chances over the past few days and said that conditions are forecast to become unfavorable for formation later this week.

By this time of the year, sea-surface temperatures are the typically the warmest, the ability for the atmosphere to produce thunderstorms is at its peak, upper-level winds are more relaxed, and tropical waves moveing west across the Atlantic are in no short supply.

The NHC's Tropical Weather Outlook predicts that by Thursday the chance of a tropical storm forming will be at 40 percent.

There are two other areas that the hurricane center is monitoring as well.
