Forecasters monitor area of low pressure in the Atlantic Ocean

MIAMI, FL (WAFB) - The National Hurricane Center said shower and thunderstorm activity associated with an area of low pressure in the Atlantic Ocean was disorganized Wednesday morning.

Forecasters reported gradual development is possible over the next few days. It was located several hundred miles east of the southern Windward Islands and is expected to take a west-northwestward trek at 10 to 15 mph across the Lesser Antilles and into the Caribbean Sea.

Meteorologists said there is about a 30 percent chance of formation into a tropical system over the next two days, but those chances increase to 50 percent through five days.

They are also watching a tropical wave about 1,000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. They said it is also producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. The chances of development are low, as forecasters believe it may interact with the other disturbance.
