NHC forecast environmental conditions to be marginally conducive for some development of this system while the wave enters the extreme eastern Atlantic on Friday.
The wave farthest away from Florida has the best odds for developing into a depression within the next 48 hours, up to 70%, and 90% odds for the next five days.
Forecasters are monitoring two areas with a high potential for development across the Atlantic basin. This disturbance is moving westward at about 20 miles per hour, and is forecast to continue to move quickly westward over the eastern and central Caribbean Sea during the next couple of days. Forecasters say the wave will develop into a tropical depression.
A tropical depression is likely to form here in the next few days as it moves across the Caribbean toward Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. One is moving into the Caribbean and could be in the Gulf this weekend.
To make matters more complicated, both waves have some Saharan Dust to go through, as well as pockets of high wind shear (the red shaded areas) Both factors could disrupt development, but if the dust or shear weakens as these systems move west, then development could continue, unimpeded.
Wave one, the closer one, is continuing to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the eastern Caribbean Sea, according to the hurricane center's 2 a.m. Tuesday advisory.
Two of them have the potential - though it's far from certain - to affect the U.S. The National Hurricane Center gives the disturbance an 80% chance of development over the next 5 days.
Are you prepared for hurricane season?
Wieland said most models bring this system toward South Florida by next Monday or Tuesday, however, the strength of the system is unknown at this time.
The next two names on the already historic 2020 hurricane season will be Laura and Marco.
