The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported Saturday that the tropical wave moving across the tropical Atlantic has a 50% chance of becoming a tropical depression within the next 48 hours.

Likewise, the referred meteorological center indicated that this percentage increased to 70% for the following seven days.

Also, in the bulletin, the center reported that this tropical wave produces a wide area of showers and disorganized thunderstorms.

“Environmental conditions appear conducive for additional development, and a tropical depression is likely to form early to mid-next week as the system moves,” read part of the NHC report.

According to the DNCD, the aforementioned atmospheric phenomenon is located “several hundred miles” south-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands and could become a tropical depression, moving westward at 15 to 20 miles per hour.
