By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The United States National Hurricane Center (NHC) is monitoring two disturbances in the Atlantic, including one that is likely to turn into a tropical depression by early next week.
In its 6 am (Belize Time) weather outlook, for the North Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, the NHC said that a large area of disorganized cloudiness and thunderstorms is located a few hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands. It is associated with a tropical wave that is interacting with a broader surface trough. The NHC said the system can develop over the next few days. It could become a tropical depression late this weekend or early next week as it moves generally west-northwestward across the tropical Atlantic.
The NHC is also tracking a trough of low pressure over the central tropical Atlantic. This system which continues to produce some disorganized showers and thunderstorms is expected to move slowly west-northwestward. The NHC said that some slow development is possible early next week as the system approaches the Lesser Antilles.
