The NHC began monitoring a tropical wave over western Africa on August 26.[109] The disturbance entered the Atlantic late the next day,[110] gradually organizing into Tropical Storm Irma west of Cabo Verde around 15:00 UTC on August 30.[111] Early on August 31, Irma underwent a remarkable period of rapid intensification, with winds increasing from 70 mph (110 km/h) – a high-end tropical storm – to 115 mph (185 km/h), a major hurricane, in a mere 12 hours.[112] An eyewall replacement cycle then took place shortly thereafter, which caused the storm to briefly be downgraded to a Category 2.[113]

Potential Tropical Cyclone Ten near the Carolinas on August 28
A long-tracked tropical wave strengthened into Potential Tropical Cyclone Ten southeast of Florida on August 25. The NHC gave this disturbance a very high chance of strengthening to a tropical cyclone at first (90%). However, the system had failed to attain any more tropical characteristics, and the NHC issued its last advisory on the system on August 29 after declaring the system an extratropical low.
