Is Tropical Storm Irene brewing in the Atlantic Ocean? Hurricane experts are warning a tropical wave in the Atlantic Ocean has a 90 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression in the next 48 hours.
A tropical weather outlook issue at 2 p.m. Saturday showed that the wave located about 250 miles east of the Lesser Antilles is getting better organized. The system is moving west at about 20 mph, but there was no evidence of a surface circulation.
An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter plane is on the way to investigate the system, according to National Hurricane Center.
