Tropics heating up, two disturbances likely to develop

The tropics are heating up as we are watching two disturbances. The one of more interest to us here in South Florida is a large area of disturbed weather located several hundred miles to the southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. Conditions are likely to become more conducive for development into a tropical depression or storm early next week over the central Atlantic. The system is moving to the west at 10 – 15 mph and has an 80% chance of development. On this track, the disturbance will be near the Lesser Antilles next Tuesday into Wednesday. In addition, a strong tropical wave located near the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao) has a 40% chance of developing over the next 5 days. The system is moving west-northwest at 15 – 20 mph across the western Caribbean toward the Yucatan Peninsula.
