MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- The Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone in the Atlantic Ocean between west Africa and the Lesser Antilles has become more active lately, which is typical for this phase of the hurricane season.  While the former Hurricane Danny has diminished into a remnant low-pressure system in the northeast Caribbean, a vigorous disturbance farther east has continued to develop Monday, and is forecast to become a tropical depression or storm soon.  For specific details on this system, visit the Hurricane Center.

Another tropical wave even farther east, just south of the Cape Verde Islands, has an initial low-end chance for organize into a stronger tropical system, mainly because of the drier nature of the air around it.
