Posted: Wednesday, August 16, 2023. 9:12 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) are closely monitoring 3 tropical disturbances in the Atlantic.

The first is an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms located over the central tropical Atlantic associated with an elongated trough of low pressure.

It is centered about 750 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. 

A tropical depression could form during the next several days while moving toward the west or west-northwest at about 10 mph across the central tropical Atlantic.

This system has a 50% chance of formation through the next 7 days.

Off the west coast of Africa, weather experts are watching a tropical wave.

Further development of the low is possible, and a tropical depression could form over the weekend before environmental conditions become unfavorable early next week.

This system has a 40% chance of formation through the next 7 days.

In the Western Gulf of Mexico, forecasters are monitoring a broad area of low pressure.

This system could develop as it moves westward and approaches the western Gulf of Mexico coastline by the middle of next week.

This system has a 20% chance of formation through the next 7 days.
