The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is keeping a close eye on two areas that could potentially develop into tropical storms.
One of them is located in the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean, and the other is in the Southwestern Caribbean Sea.
According to the NHC’s 8 am update, the area of low pressure in the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean is showing signs of organization, with thunderstorms and showers.
It is likely that a tropical depression or storm will form later today or tonight while the system moves west-northwestward.
However, by Tuesday, strong upper-level winds and dry air should put an end to its further development.
An Air Force reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system later today. The disturbance has a high chance of formation at 70 percent through 48 hours and 7 days.
Meanwhile, in the Southwestern Caribbean Sea, there is a possibility of a broad area of low pressure forming in a few days over the central or southwestern Caribbean Sea.
If it does, gradual development is possible while the system moves generally westward at 10 to 15 mph.
This disturbance currently has a low chance of formation at near 0 percent through 48 hours and 20 percent through 7 days.
Lastly, the NHC has issued its last advisory on Tammy, which is now a post-tropical cyclone located about 670 miles east of Bermuda.
