The Atlantic Basin, including Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea, remain void of any tropical systems.
However, there are a couple of tropical waves accompanied by disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity. One tropical wave is passing through the Florida Straights on Thursday; another is still east of the Lesser Antilles.
Shower and thunderstorm coverage may increase along the central and western Gulf Coast as the wave entering the Gulf of Mexico continues westward over the next 72 hours.
Neither have a significant chance of developing into a tropical system within the next five days. However, the First Alert Forecast Team will keep an eye on the latest data.
