We will closely watch a well-defined low pressure system over in the eastern tropical Atlantic more than 200 miles southwest of the coast of Guinea.
Associated shower and thunderstorm activity are beginning to show some signs of organization, and environmental conditions are conducive for additional development of this system. A tropical depression is likely to form during the next day or so as the low moves west to west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph. The National Hurricane Center said this strong tropical wave has a high potential (90 percent) for development.MORE NEWS: Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa Placed On Injured Reserve

This system is expected to move gradually west-northwestw or northwest at 5 to 10 mph toward Central America. The National Hurricane Center says this disturbance has a low potential (20 percent) for development.
