By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The United States National Hurricane Center (NHC) is following two tropical waves in the Atlantic Ocean.
However, at this point, the Belize National Meteorological Service said that “tropical cyclone formation is not expected in the North Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea, or the Gulf of Mexico during the next 48 hours.”
According to the NHC 6 a.m. report on Tuesday, the two systems could develop into tropical depressions within the next five days.
The first tropical wave is located about 850 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.
The NHC said “some slow development of this disturbance is possible later this week and this weekend while the system moves westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph, likely reaching the Lesser Antilles by Wednesday night.”
There is a 40 percent probability that it could form into a tropical depression within the next five days.
The second tropical wave is about 800 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde islands. The NHC said since yesterday it’s better organized.
According to the NHC “additional slow development of this system is possible during the next several days as it moves generally west-northwestward at about 20 mph.”
The probability that this system will become a tropical depression within the next five day is low at just 20 percent.
