After weekend of squabbles, all of the major weather models now indicated the Cristobal will remain far offshore. Cristobal’s only impact will be to ocean shipping interests and to vacationing swimmers and the lifeguards who protect them.

As of 11 a.m., Monday, Aug. 25, Cristobal was located near the Bahamas with sustained winds of 60 mph. Cristobal was crawling north-northeast at 2 p.m.

Another tropical wave forms in eastern Atlantic Ocean

Elsewhere, a tropical wave located 1,100 miles west-southwest of the Cape VerdeIsland is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms, according to the National Hurricane Center.

While development is not expected during the next few days, the wave could develop during the Labor Day Weekend as it moves across the Atlantic Ocean and into a favorable area for development, the Hurricane Center said.

The wave has a 30-percent chance of development during the next five days.
