Met Service keeping track of new tropical depression

FIRST ALERT A potential tropical system could impact parts of the Southeastern coast starting this weekend

Forecasters are watching two tropical disturbances as they develop into depressions over the next couple of days, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Another area of showers and thunderstorms is in the Atlantic, east of the Leeward Islands.

The system, designated Tropical Depression Five, is moving steadily west at 10 to 15 miles per hour.

A tropical wave near the east coast of Florida also has a high chance for development by the end of the weekend or early in the upcoming week.

This area of disturbed weather, now referred by the center as "Disturbance 2" is showing signs of organization and environmental conditions "appear conducive for additional development", according to the hurricane center's Saturday morning advisory. Both stand good chances of becoming named storms Dorian and Erin over the weekend.

Formation chance through 48 hours.low.10 percent.

The depression is moving west and is expected to turn Sunday toward the west-northwest.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

The first disturbance is producing large areas of showers and thunderstorms from South Florida to the northwestern Bahamas and the adjacent Atlantic waters because of a broad area of lower pressure located inland over Florida. However, this storm is still a little young in its development to talk specifics about impacts.

After that, the system is expected to move northeast away from the southeast United States coast.

The system east of the Lesser Antilles has now become tropical depression 5. High temps will be in the upper 80s.
