By BBN Staff: The National Hurricane Center continues to monitor two tropical systems in the Atlantic.

A broad and elongated area of low pressure is producing disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity several hundred miles south and southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.

Environmental conditions appear conducive for this system to consolidate and develop during the next few days, and a tropical depression is likely to form by the early or middle part of next week while moving west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph across the tropical Atlantic Ocean.

There is a 80 percent formation chance through the next 5 days.

The NHC is also watching a tropical wave that is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the central and eastern Caribbean Sea.

This disturbance is expected to move west-northwestward at about 15 mph across the western Caribbean Sea and Bay of Campeche through the middle of next week, where environmental conditions appear conducive for development.
