BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A tropical depression may form this weekend in the Atlantic. It is one of two systems that, while early, appear to be tracking in the general direction of Florida.

The “red X” above has a 70 percent chance of formation, according to meteorologists at the National Hurricane Center. The system marked by a “yellow” X has a 20 percent chance.

This is the early morning update from the NHC:

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

  1. A large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms located a few
    hundred miles south-southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands is
    associated with a tropical wave interacting with a broader surface
    trough. Environmental conditions appear somewhat conducive for
    gradual development, and a tropical depression is likely to form
    this weekend or early next week while the system moves generally
    west-northwestward across the eastern tropical Atlantic.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…40 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent.
  1. A tropical wave located over the central tropical Atlantic continues
    to produce some disorganized showers and thunderstorms. This system
    is expected to move west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph, and some
    slow development is possible early next week when it is expected to
    be near the Lesser Antilles.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.
