HOLT, Fla., Aug. 1, 2017–The National Hurricane Center is watching another tropical wave in the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

Located several hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, the low-pressure system is moving westward at 10-to-15 mph.

The hurricane center predicts some slow development is possible during the next few days, but upper-level winds are expected to prevent further development by the weekend.

The chance of this disturbance forming into a tropical depression is a low 20 percent through the next five days.

Meanwhile, now-Tropical Depression Emily has moved across Florida and into the Atlantic where its path will take it away from the east coast of the United States.
