Two areas have low chances of development

9-9-8amHOLT, Fla., Sept. 9, 2019—The National Hurricane Center is watching two disturbances in the Atlantic Ocean.

A weak area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave is located midway between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Windward Islands.

Some slow development of this system is possible during the next two or three days before upper-level winds become unfavorable for development.

This system is expected to move generally westward across the tropical Atlantic Ocean for the next several days.

Formation chances are low at 30 percent through the next five days.

A second area is located a few hundred miles north and northeast of the Greater Antilles.

Little-to-no development of this system is expected during the next day or two while the system moves west-northwest north of the Greater Antilles.

Environmental conditions could become a little more favorable for development when the disturbance moves near the Bahamas and Florida late this week.

The NHC gives this a 20 percent chance of further development.

Meanwhile Tropical Storm Gabrielle is expected to weaken and become absorbed by a larger low-pressure system over the northeastern Atlantic in the next few days.
