Elsewhere over the Atlantic basin on the Thursday evening, NHC is watching two tropical waves. Each has a low (30 percent) chance of formation during the next five days.
One wave is located over the central tropical Atlantic, and the associated showers and thunderstorm have gradually become a little better organized during the day. Additional development of this system is possible during the next several days while it moves westward at about 15 mph.
The other is located the far eastern Atlantic Ocean just west of the Cabo Verde Islands, producing disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity. The northern part of this wave, which is expected to move rapidly westward over the central Atlantic during the next few days, is forecast to remain too far to the north and in an unfavorable environment for development to occur. However, the southern part of the wave is expected be nearly stationary south of the Cabo Verde Islands for the next several days, and some development of this system is possible early next week when it begins to move slowly westward over the eastern and central tropical Atlantic.
