The first disturbance, located just off the shores of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, is producing heavy rainfall on the islands.
Conditions could become marginally conducive for more development late this week when the disturbance moves near Florida.
However, with only a 10-percent chance of developing into tropical storm in the next five days, Florida’s Space Coast could see some rain showers over the weekend.
