A new wave to watch

A tropical wave (orange No. 1 in the above photo) is interacting with an upper-level low about 300 miles east-northeast of the Leeward Islands, according to the National Weather Service.

This is a disorganized mass of showers and thunderstorms at the moment, but upper-level winds might become favorable over the coming days for it to develop.

The weather service gives it a "medium chance" -- 30 percent to 50 percent -- of becoming a tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours.
