Two tropical waves have hurricane center’s attention

7-30pmHOLT, Fla., July 30, 2019—A tropical wave continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms over Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

The National Hurricane Center forecasts this disturbance to move west-northwest to northwest during the next several days.

Conditions could become marginally conducive for development late this week when the disturbance moves near Florida and the northwestern Bahamas, according to the NHC.

Formation chance through the next five days remains low at 10 percent.

Elsewhere, a tropical wave located over the eastern tropical Atlantic a few hundred miles south-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands continues to produce a broad area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.

No significant development of this system is expected for the next few days while it moves westward at about 15 mph.

However, after that, environmental conditions are forecast to gradually become more favorable and a tropical depression could form several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles during the weekend, according to the NHC.

Formation through the next five days has increased to a medium chance of 40 percent.
