Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center are keeping a close watch over three weather systems now churning in the Atlantic basin.
Although the systems have low potential for cyclone formation at this stage the Miami-based NHC is advising those in the North Atlantic, Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico to pay attention to its development.
The first system, the NHC said in its Saturday morning advisory, is a broad area of low pressure located a couple hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands and is producing disorganised showers and thunderstorms.
The NHC said, although environmental conditions are only marginally conducive, “some slow development of this system is possible during the next few days while the system moves west-northwestward to westward across the eastern and central tropical Atlantic at 10 to 15 miles per hour.”
This system has a 20% chance of formation through the next 48 hours and a 30% chance of formation through five days.
