Two disturbances bear watching in the Atlantic

It’s the peak of Hurricane Season, and right on cue, we’re tracking two disturbances in the tropical Atlantic! Both feature a low to medium chance of development as they slide westward over the next several days.

The first disturbance is about 600 miles east of the Windward Islands, and is currently producing disorganized showers and storms. Some gradual development of this system is possible as it pushes into the western Caribbean next week. Regardless of development, the wave will bring gusty squalls to the Lesser Antilles on Sunday. The NHC gives this wave a low 30% chance of development over the next 5 days.

Meanwhile, a large area of disturbed weather is located SW of the Cabo Verde Islands. Near-term development is unlikely, however, some development of this system is possible early next week when it begins moving slowly westward across the tropical Atlantic. The NHC gives this wave a medium 40% chance of development over the next 5 days.

Stay tuned to the Weather Authority for updates! The next names on the list are Nana and Omar.
