RALEIGH (WTVD) – Two tropical waves in the Atlantic Ocean are slowing the organization and strengthening as they move west towards the Americas The two systems are still too far apart to know if they will become tropical storms or hurricanes or whether they will ever make landfall.The first is located several hundred kilometers west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. The National Hurricane Center said this system doesn’t really move much. One system just east is expected to pass by early next week before it begins to organize and move, and this other system is moving at around 15 miles per hour. It only has a 20% chance of developing into a tropical depression within the next 48 hours, but it has a 70% chance of developing within the next five days.
