Hurricane Center tracking 4 disturbances in Atlantic, Caribbean: What to know

Atlantic

The National Hurricane Center on Monday morning was tracking four disturbances in the Atlantic and the Caribbean. Two of them are expected to develop into tropical depressions this week, forecasters said.

It's too early to tell if any of the disturbances could reach the Gulf of Mexico and be a threat to Louisiana.

The shaded area on the graphic is where a storm could develop and is not a track. The National Hurricane Center releases a track when a system develops or is about to develop into a tropical depression.

Here's what to know about the tropics as of 7 a.m. Monday from the National Hurricane Center.

Tropical depression expected in Atlantic

A tropical depression is expected to form in the next day or so off the East Coast, forecasters said.

As of 7 a.m. Monday, the low pressure systems was about 150 miles southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina. It has become better organized overnight, and the Hurricane Hunters are scheduled to investigate the system Monday afternoon if needed.

It has a 70% chance (high) of developing into at least a tropical depression within five days.

It's expected to form near the coast but offshore and remain over the sea, forecasters said.

Disturbance off coast of Africa

Gradual development is possible for a tropical wave expected to emerge off the coast of Africa in a couple days, forecasters said.

It's expected to move slowly west over the Atlantic.

It has a 30% chance (low) of developing into a tropical depression within five days.

Disturbance over Atlantic Ocean

It's producing little shower activity and further development is not expected, forecaster said.

It has a 10% chance (low) of developing into at tropical depression within five days.

What else to know?

No other storms are expected to form in the next 48 hours in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean or the Atlantic.

The next available storm name is Nana.

The peak of hurricane season, which is Sept. 10, is approaching. The Atlantic hurricane season ends Nov. 30.
