TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- Two areas of disturbed weather in the Atlantic Ocean are currently being watched by the National Hurricane Center.

The first is a non-tropical area of low pressure that is expected to move into the central Atlantic Ocean. Once the low forms, there is a chance that it could have tropical or subtropical characteristics as is lingers in place. At this time, there is only a 20% chance of formation for this area of interest.

The second disturbance is sitting halfway between the coast of Africa and the Lesser Antilles. Right now, the showers and thunderstorms associated with this are very disorganized. It's not expected that much development will be seen as over the next several days. In fact, there is only a 10% chance of formation in the next five days.
