HOLT, Fla., Sept. 13, 2017–The National Hurricane Center is watching two new areas in the eastern Atlantic Ocean near Africa.

The first is a tropical wave located about 600 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.

The second is an area of disturbed weather located near the west coast of Africa producing disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity.

Some gradual development of both systems is possible during the next several days while they move westward.

The first wave is moving at 15 mph and has a 30 percent chance of further devlopment during the next five days.

The second area of interest is moving a bit slower at 10-to-15 mph and has a 20 percent chance of further development.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Jose, a low category one storm, is expected to loop back toward the east-northeast and weaken to a tropical storm in a couple of days.
