WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A tropical wave in the Eastern Atlantic has a high chance of development and a tropical depression could form in the next couple of days. Latest long-range computer models keep this east of Florida wrapping around the Bermuda high.

Another wave is set to emerge off the coast of Africa where it has a low chance of development.
