BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The National Hurricane Center is watching two systems, one with a 60 percent chance of formation over the next five days.

From the National Hurricane Center Friday afternoon, August 6, 2021:

  1. A large area of disorganized cloudiness and showers located a few
    hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands is associated with
    a tropical wave and an associated broad area of low pressure.
    Environmental conditions appear somewhat conducive for gradual
    development over the next several days, and a tropical depression
    could form late this weekend or early next week while the system
    moves generally west-northwestward across the tropical Atlantic.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…30 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…medium…60 percent.
  1. A tropical wave located over the west-central tropical Atlantic
    is producing limited shower activity. Development, if any, of this
    system is expected to be slow to occur as it moves west-
    northwestward and approaches the Lesser Antilles early next week.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.
