BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – National Hurricane Center released a report on Wednesday that they are monitoring a couple of disturbances in the Atlantic as hurricane season begins to enter the most active time of the season.

The first disturbance is a tropical wave that is several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antiles. While the chances of this system developing into a power storm are small at this time, it does have a 20-percent chance of developing further as the area is marginally conducive for some slow development east of the Lesser Antilles by Sunday and into early next week.

The second disturbance is another tropical wave forecast to move off of the west coast of Africa by late Thursday.

Environmental conditions appear somewhat conducive for gradual development thereafter over the far eastern tropical Atlantic through the weekend into early next week while the system moves generally westward at about 15 mph.

National Hurricane Center is forecasting a 40-percent chance for the disturbance to have further development over the next five-days.
