In the tropics, we’re keeping an eye on three waves that all have a chance of developing into our next depression.  The first is in the central Atlantic, and it has a high chance of developing.  Another wave, this one in the eastern Atlantic, has a low chance of developing during the next five days.  But we’ll keep a closer watch on the wave approaching the central Caribbean.  It has a high chance of developing and is expected to affect portions of Central America and enter the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.
