BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Nothing to worry about yet, but two of the three systems you see on the map above may soon become tropical depressions. Where they go and what they do remains unclear, but meteorologists at the National Hurricane Center are closely watching the systems that may strengthen over the next several days.

From the NHC on Sunday morning, August 8, 2021:

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

  1. An area of low pressure is producing disorganized showers and
    thunderstorms over the tropical Atlantic several hundred miles east
    of the Windward Islands. Environmental conditions are expected
    to be favorable to support some gradual development, and this
    system could become a tropical depression while it moves west-
    northwestward at 10 to 15 mph. The disturbance is forecast to
    reach portions of the Lesser Antilles late Monday and then move
    across the eastern Caribbean Sea and Greater Antilles through the
    middle of this week. Interests in those areas should monitor the
    progress of this system, as it could bring locally heavy rainfall
    and gusty winds to portions of that area.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…30 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent.
  1. Showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure
    located over the tropical Atlantic about midway between the Cabo
    Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles have become more concentrated
    since yesterday. Environmental conditions are expected to become a
    little more favorable for gradual development, and this system
    could become a tropical depression within the next few days. The
    system is forecast to move slowly toward the west-southwest or west
    during the next couple of days, and then move a little faster toward
    the west by mid-week.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…30 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent.
  1. Showers and thunderstorms associated with a broad area of low
    pressure located about a hundred miles west of the southwesternmost
    Cabo Verde Islands have diminished since yesterday. Strong
    upper-level winds and cooler waters are expected to prevent the
    development of this system while it moves toward the west or
    west-northwest.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…near 0 percent.
