TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- Even though the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico are quiet, there is an area of interest in the Atlantic Ocean.

This tropical wave has a 20% chance of formation in the next five days and is passing south of the Cabo Verde Islands. At this time, it is just an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms, but gradual development is possible as is continues moving west at 15 to 20 mph.
