WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A wave will move off the coast of Africa where it has a high chance of development within the next five days. A tropical depression is likely to form by late-week as this area moves west.

An area of showers and storms east of the Bahamas will start to push north where it has a medium chance of development. This system should stay away from us in Florida.
