BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The National Hurricane Center is now watching two legitimate systems that have a chance for forming into Tropical Depressions.

This is the latest update (as of midday Wednesday) from the National Hurricane Center:

For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

A small and weak area of low pressure, with limited shower and
thunderstorm activity, is passing near the Cabo Verde Islands.
Significant development of this system is not expected during the
next day or so due to unfavorable environmental conditions.
Thereafter, this system is forecast to move northward or
north-northwestward over cooler waters, ending its development
chances. Locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds are possible over
portions of the Cabo Verde Islands through today.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…near 0 percent.

A tropical wave located over the central tropical Atlantic is
producing a broad area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.
Environmental conditions are expected to be marginally conducive
for some slow development east of the Lesser Antilles by Sunday and
into early next week while the disturbance moves west-northwestward
at 10 to 15 mph.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.

A tropical wave is forecast to move off the west coast of Africa by
late Thursday. Environmental conditions appear somewhat conducive
for some slow development over the far eastern Atlantic through the
weekend into early next week while the system moves generally
westward at about 15 mph.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.
