The National Hurricane Center is watching two disturbances developing in the tropics this evening.

The first is an unorganized tropical wave located in the eastern Caribbean. Over the next few days the storm is forecast to move west-northwestward across the north-central Caribbean, but little to no development is expected.

The tropical wave still has the potential to produce heavy rainfall and possible flooding across Puerto Rice and Hispaniola.

The storm as a 0% chance for development over the next 48 hours and a 10% chance over the next 5 days.

The second tropical wave is located in the far eastern Atlantic a few hundred miles southeast of Cabo Verde. The conditions in the atmosphere are unfavorable for significant development over the next few days. However, the conditions become more conducive for development by the weekend.

The storm as a 0% chance for development over the next 48 hours and a 20% chance over the next 5 days.
