MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Only a few disorganized batches of moisture lurk in nearby tropical waters.  One of these is located near the Bahamas, associated with an upper-level low-pressure disturbance.  It is not forecast to become a tropical depression, but it may provide additional moisture needed to support higher rain chances in Florida and parts of Georgia over the weekend.

A second wave of moisture is just north of Panama.  It is not likely to become a depression and should remain in the far southern Caribbean.

The area of highest potential to develop into a depression is in the Cape Verde region of the far eastern Atlantic.  Chances are still limited for the system to strengthen in the next few days, as it fights against a generally dry air mass in the proximity of the system.
