The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Depression Thirteen, located several hundred miles east of the
northern Leeward Islands, and on Tropical Depression Fourteen,
located just east of the Honduras/Nicaragua border.
1. A tropical wave moving off of the west coast of Africa is producing
a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. This wave
is expected to move farther offshore over the far eastern tropical
Atlantic on Friday, and it could become a tropical depression within
the next few days while it moves west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph

expected to become less favorable for development early next week.
Regardless of development, this system will likely bring gusty winds
across portions of the Cabo Verde Islands this weekend, as well as
heavy rains that could cause flooding.
