MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) --  A couple of suspicious disturbances in the Atlantic aren't displaying healthy storm action or development Tuesday.  The remnants of Tropical Depression Four are moving to the west, just north of Puerto Rico, with a general lack of organization and rain development.  A second wave farther east over open Atlantic waters has also lost much of its rain and storm formation.  The chances of these becoming better organized in the next few days are very limited.

The leftover former tropical depression is projected to carry at least a modest amount of tropical moisture into the Florida Peninsula and the Gulf region over the weekend through early next week and may heighten rain chances for the area.  But in general, a re-strengthening of the system looks unlikely at this point.
