There are three tropical disturbances in the Atlantic and Gulf Of Mexico, but no threat at this time for Sebastian, Florida.

The first disturbance, shown in red on the map, is a tropical wave located about 900 miles east-southeast of the southern Windward Islands. 

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) says it could become a tropical depression by Wednesday. 

“Environmental conditions appear conducive for further development, and a tropical depression is likely to form during the next couple of days before the system reaches the Windward Islands Tuesday night or possibly while moving westward across the southern Caribbean Sea Wednesday through Friday,” NHC said. 

There’s a 70 percent chance of formation during the next 48 hours.

Tracking models show the disturbance maintaining a westward movement into the Caribbean Sea towards Venezuela.

The second disturbance is located in the northern part of the Gulf of Mexico, traveling west-southwest at about 10 mph. There’s only a 10 percent chance of formation as it approaches the coast of southern Texas.

And finally, a third disturbance appeared in the Atlantic, located several hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. It is also moving west-northwestward at around 15 mph but is expected to fizzle out by Wednesday.

To reiterate, none of these disturbances threaten Sebastian as long as they remain on their current track. 

Sebastian Daily will continue to monitor these disturbances.
