What's out there and where are they?

Disturbance 1: Closest to the U.S. is an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms associated with a small area of low pressure located about 200 miles east of Barbados.

Disturbance 2: The second system is a strong tropical wave expected to emerge off the coast of Africa later today.

How likely are they to strengthen? 

Disturbance 1: Increasing upper-level winds are likely to prevent further development of this system during the next couple of days while it moves west-northwest at about 10 mph. This disturbance could produce increased shower activity and some gusty winds when it moves across the Lesser Antilles Friday.
