MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- The three disturbances present in various parts of the tropical Atlantic basin have some future potential for organizing into tropical lows.

One near the South and North Carolina coast will likely skim those regions with clouds and rain before moving to the northeast in the next 24 to 48 hours. There are medium chances for it to acquire a tropical depression or storm label, but likely after it pulls itself away from the U.S. east coast.

The former Subtropical Storm Leslie will meander in the central parts of the North Atlantic, with some chances for re-generation in the long-range outlook.

The disturbance once known as Tropical Storm Kirk will steadily move westward toward the Lesser Antilles and the western Caribbean, where upper-level winds are still strong and may inhibit long-term strengthening efforts.
