Tropical Blog: Edouard strengthening; No development elsewhere

Updated:
NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

No development is likely for the next several days. A wave should come off the African coast Wednesday, but the NHC is only giving the area a 20 percent chance for development in the next 5 days.

Edouard will likely become a category 3 hurricane today, making it the first major hurricane of the Atlantic season.

Long range models are looking pretty good for us as we head into the second half of September. Once in October, the risk of evacuation-type storms is reduced to almost zero. Stay tuned!
