TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The National Hurricane Center is monitoring two tropical waves in the Atlantic. However, both have a low chance of forming over the next few days.

The NHC said one of the tropical waves is located over the central Caribbean Sea and is producing disorganized shower activity. It is moving westward at 25 mph.

The tropical wave could gradually develop in a few days over the western Caribbean Sea or the southwestern Gulf of Mexico during the weekend. It has a 20 percent chance of forming over the next seven days.

“The tropical waves that may possibly develop as it approaches Campeche Bay will not be a concern for us, it looks like whether it develops or whether it stays a weak tropical wave, the result is the same- a rain-making system for Eastern Mexico and Texas,” Max Defender 8 Meteorologist Rebecca Barry said.

Meteorologists are also tracking an area of disorganized showers and storms a few hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. The system could slowly develop over the next several days while it moves westward across the central and western tropical Atlantic. It has a 30 percent chance of developing over the next seven days.

“It is too soon to tell if and when it will form and where it may impact,” Barry said.

Max Defender 8 Meteorologist Amanda Holly said the system will move through Saharan dust over the next few days, limiting its development as it moves closer to the Caribbean.

“We’re keeping an eye on it. At this point, nothing to worry about over the next eight days,” Holly said.
