One of two tropical waves shows promise for now

Forecast8-6-8pmHOLT, Fla., Sept. 6, 2019—The two low-pressure systems in the Atlantic Ocean are forecast to make their way west during the next few days.

According to the National Hurricane Center, the closer of the two systems, located a few hundred miles northeast of the Leeward Islands, has a low chance of developing into a tropical system.

Significant development is not expected during the next several days while it moves slowly west-northwest.

However, the low-pressure system located just west of the Cabo Verde Islands has a high chance of further development through the forecast period, according to the NHC.

While it may show little development, if any, for the next couple of days, the NHC gives this system a 70 percent chance through the next five days.

The system may become a tropical depression by Tuesday or Wednesday as it makes its trek west across the Atlantic.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Gabrielle is expected to become a hurricane by late Sunday or Monday, according to the NHC.

Traveling northwests at 17 mph, Gabrielle is expected to turn northeast Monday and move away from the United States.
