FIRST ALERT: Watching two chances of development
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - We now have two chances of development to watch for in the tropics but they remain low this morning.
The first chance of development remains to be that broad area of low pressure that could form in a day or so over the southwestern Caribbean Sea. Any development of this system is expected to be slow to occur during the next several days while the system moves slowly west-southwestward or westward across the southwestern Caribbean Sea. Regardless of tropical cyclone formation, areas of heavy rain are possible during the next several days from Nicaragua southward across Central America and into Colombia. These rains could cause new flooding concerns, especially across previously inundated areas. The chance of development is lower this morning at 20%.
A new chance of development this morning is a non-tropical area of low pressure could form between the Bahamas and Bermuda by early next week. The system could gradually develop subtropical characteristics through the middle of next week while it moves northeastward. The chance of development is low at 20% over the next five days.
Neither of these chances pose a threat to the United States.
