Hurricane forecasters on Monday morning were tracking two disturbances in the Atlantic. Both have the potential for some development, the National Hurricane Center said.
The hurricane season ends on November 30.
Here is what you should know about the riots.
Tropical wave east of the Windward Islands
At 7 am Monday, a tropical wave was several hundred miles east of the Windward Islands. It was moving west at 20 mph, forecasters said.
The disturbance was causing disorganized showers and thunderstorms, and forecasters said “slight development” is possible the next day.
By midweek, forecasters said, strong upper-level winds are expected to halt any further development.
It has a 10% (low) chance of becoming at least a tropical depression in 5 days.
Low pressure system off the east coast
A low-pressure area is expected to form on Tuesday off the southeastern coast of the US, forecasters said.
“Some” development is possible later this week as it moves northeast far away from the east coast, the notice said.
It has a 20% (low) probability of becoming at least a tropical depression in five days.
