BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The National Hurricane Center is continuing to monitor two disturbances in the Atlantic ocean as hurricane season gets into full swing.

The first disturbance is a tropical wave located over the eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean more than 600 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing a small area of showers and thunderstorms.

National Hurricane Center says the slow development of this system could pick up as it heads toward the west and then west-northwest at about 20 mph.

The chances for further development are 20-percent in the next two days, while those chances increase to 30-percent in the next five days.

The second disturbance is a surface trough interacting that has disorganized showers and thunderstorms about 600 miles east-southeast of the Georgia coast.

Surface pressures remain high across the area, and significant development of this system is not anticipated due to dry air and unfavorable upper-level winds.

The disturbance is expected to move westward today, and then west-northwestward at about 15 mph on Monday, reaching the coast of the southeastern United States by late Monday.
