The National Hurricane Center is monitoring two tropical disturbances in the Atlantic.
The first one is known as Tropical Depression Four, about 190 miles east of South Carolina. The system is expected to reach the coast of southern South Carolina or Georgia later tonight.
“If advisories are initiated, then tropical storm warnings could be required for a portion of the Georgia and South Carolina coasts with short notice. Regardless of development, a few inches of rain are possible along the immediate coasts of Georgia and southern South Carolina through Tuesday. An Air Force Reserve Unit reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system this afternoon,” the NHC said in a statement.
The other tropical disturbance is located approximately 300 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and has the potential to develop over the next five days. Forecasters say it could impact the Bahamas by the end of the week.
The disturbance has a 40 percent chance of formation during the next five days.
“Some slow development is possible through the end of the week while this system moves quickly westward to west-northwestward at about 20 mph, likely reaching the Lesser Antilles Wednesday night,” the NHC said.
Sebastian Daily is monitoring the tropics and will provide further information when it’s available.
