In the busy tropics, the disturbance in the central Caribbean has a high chance of becoming a depression on Thursday or Friday.  Regardless of development, this system will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, the Yucatan, and portions of Central America and western Cuba during the next couple of days.  The system will then enter the western Gulf of Mexico, where additional strengthening is likely. This system poses a threat to Louisiana, Texas, and northern Mexico next week.

In the central Atlantic, the wave about 650 miles east-southeast of Bermuda has a high chance of developing into a depression in the next few days as it moves to the northeast.  And the wave several hundred miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands has a low chance of developing during the next five days.
