The National Hurricane Center in Miami is tracking two disturbances Tuesday morning, one the Atlantic and the other in the Caribbean.
Both systems have a low chance of formation over the next two days, the NHC said, but the Atlantic disturbance could develop further later this week.
Neither system is close to the Gulf and they are not expected to affect the New Orleans area over the next few days.
Here’s the forecast.
System in the Atlantic
An area of low pressure is expected to develop in the subtropical Atlantic later Tuesday, the NHC said.
The system is expected to move southeast over warmer water temperatures, and it could develop further later this week.
A northeastward turn is forecast over the weekend.
The system has a 20% chance for development over the next two days and a 60% chance for development over the next seven days.
System in the Caribbean
A small area of low pressure in the Caribbean is causing disorganized showers and thunderstorms.
Dry air is forecast to prevent further development of this system, the NHC said.
