TRACKING THE TROPICS: Two Systems To Watch In Atlantic This Week

While Hurricane Ernesto is headed to Mexico, we still have two areas to watch in the Atlantic.

The first is what's left of Florence. Disorganized shower activity continues in association with the post-tropical remnant low of Florence, which as of 8:00 p.m. Wednesday was located about 350 miles northeast of the northern Leeward Islands.

Conditions are not ripe for redevelopment. The National Hurricane Center says this system has no chance of again becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves west-northwest at about 20 miles per hour.

Another system behind the remnants of Florence is becoming a little better organized.

It's about 1,000 miles west of the southern Cape Verde Islands.

The shower activity is becoming better organized and upper level winds are expected to be conducive for some development over the next few days.

The National Hurricane Center says this system has a 50 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves westward at 10 to 15 miles per hour.

We'll continue to monitor these systems and bring you regular updates in this story.
