BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The National Hurricane Center now says two tropical disturbances are likely to become tropical depressions within the next few days. What happens after that remains unclear, but both systems continue to trek in a general direction of Florida.

This is the Sunday afternoon update from the National Hurricane Center:

  1. An elongated area of low pressure located several hundred miles
    east of the Windward Islands continues to produce disorganized
    showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions are expected
    to be favorable to support some gradual development over the next
    few days, 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 near the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Tuesday, and
    near Hispaniola around 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…medium…40 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 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 diminished this morning.
    Although environmental conditions appear to be only marginally
    conducive for development, this system could still become a
    tropical depression later this week while it moves toward the
    west-southwest or west at around 10 mph.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…30 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent.
