Here we go.

Weeks before the Atlantic hurricane season officially starts, the National Hurricane Center in Miami is tracking its first tropical wave of 2022 off the coast of Africa — are you ready?

An eastern Atlantic tropical wave was moving westward about 15 mph, according to a Monday morning NHC report: “The Hovmoller diagram satellite imagery sequence for the past 5 days reveals that this wave has a good track history. The latest satellite imagery shows an area of numerous moderate to isolated strong convection east of the wave. Tropical wave guidance has it moving westward over the next 24-48 hours, passing well to the south of the Cabo Verde Islands.”
