MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Two areas of interest in the Tropics don't have much to work with, though outlooks by the NHC have been issued as of 8:00am ET.

First, a disturbance quite close to home in the NE Gulf of Mexico continues to pull in a deep layer of moisture toward the Big Bend and South Georgia. It has near a ZERO percent chance of development through the next five days. However, this will likely bring some heavy rain to the Big Bend and South Georgia. More information on your local impacts can be found here.

Another disturbance in the open Atlantic well west of the Cape Verde Islands has near a ZERO percent chance of developing. This will continue to track west-northwest toward the Caribbean. At this point in time, this is NO threat to the U.S.
