MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - We now have two tropical waves we’re keeping a close eye on.

According to the National Hurricane Center, A tropical wave located between the west coast of Africa and the Cabo Verde Islands is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear to be conducive for gradual development, and a tropical depression could form during the early to middle portions of next week while the system moves westward at 15 to 20 mph across the eastern and central tropical Atlantic. The chance of development is 90%.
