DOTHAN, Ala. (WDNews) – A tropical wave in the Caribbean Sea is producing widespread showers and thunderstorm activity as it moves into the Gulf of Mexico according to the NOAA NWS National Hurricane Center.

NOAA says that some development over the northwestern Caribbean Sea or southwestern Gulf of Mexico is possible during the next several days.

It has a low (10 percent) chance of formation in the next 48 hours and a low (30 percent) chance in the next 7 days.

Another tropical wave located several hundred miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands continues to produce disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity as well.

Development of this system is anticipated, as a tropical depression or tropical storm is likely to form this weekend several hundred miles east of the Windward Islands while the system moves westward at 15 to 20 mph.
It has a medium (40 percent) chance of further developing in the next 48 hours and a high (70 percent) chance in the next 7 days.
