There's now two areas of interest near the Gulf that the National Hurricane Center is watching closely.
One is expected to become a weak low off the west coast of Florida over the weekend. Some development is possible before conditions become less favorable early next week. The system is still expected to be a rainmaker for areas recovering from Hurricane Irma.
The other is a tropical wave bringing clouds and showers to the northeastern Caribbean Sea and nearby Atlantic waters. It could encounter slightly more favorable conditions for development early next week.
For now, neither system is a threat for the Gulf Coast.
