BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – National Hurricane Center is closely monitoring two disturbances in the Atlantic, specifically one low pressure system about 700 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands off the coast of Africa that is likely to be named a tropical depression in the next day.
Currently, the system is carrying organized showers and thunderstorms with surface circulation beginning to develop.
Experts at the National Hurricane Center are forecasting the system to enter favorable conditions in the next day and it has a 70-percent chance to develop into a tropical depression in the next day. In five days, those conditions jump to a 90-percent favorability of developing into a tropical cyclone.
The low pressure system is moving to the west at 15-20 mph.
