TALLAHASSEE, FL. (WTXL) -- There are currently two disturbances in the tropics...one in the Atlantic Ocean, and the second in the Gulf of Mexico.

The tropical disturbance in the Atlantic Ocean is located halfway between west Africa and the Lesser Antilles. This is a area of interest currently has disorganized shower activity and cloudy conditions. In the next five days, it will continue to move in a west northwest direction at 10 to 15 mph and has a 30% chance of formation.

The second area of interest is a non-topical low pressure about 100 miles south southwest of Apalachicola, Florida. This area of low pressure could cause heavier rain for northeast and central Florida over the next several days. Locally, the Big Bend is only expected to bring us northeasterly winds. By midweek, the low is forecast to cross over the Florida Peninsula and into the western Atlantic. There is a 20% chance of formation in the next five days for this area of interest.
