MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) — The National Hurricane Center is watching a few disturbances in the Atlantic with the potential to develop.

This first disturbance is a tropical wave near Cuba producing a disorganized area of showers and storms. This one has a 40% chance to develop in the next 5 days. Gradual development is possible as it moves further west into the Gulf of Mexico. Aside from a little extra moisture... it'll have little to no impact locally.

Another tropical wave is a few hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles. Environmental conditions are expected to be somewhat favorable for development, and a tropical depression could form during the next day or two. By the weekend, however, less favorable conditions should limit additional development.

Neither of these systems pose a threat the the Big Bend or southern Georgia at the time.

As always, the First Alert Weather team will keep you updated on the latest developments this hurricane season.
