TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK: SEE LATEST NEWS ITEM ON TROPICAL STORM JOSE… ELSEWHERE, A tropical wave located about 800 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing disorganized cloudiness and showers.   Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for gradual development of this system, and a tropical depression will likely form early next week while it moves westward at around 15 mph across the tropical Atlantic.   Formation chance through 48 hours is low at 20 percent and through 5 days is high at 70 percent.

Another tropical wave, located south of the Cabo Verde Islands, is producing a large area of shower and thunderstorm activity.    This system has become much better organized since yesterday and could become a tropical depression during the next couple of days before upper-level winds become less conducive for development.    The disturbance is forecast to move westward to west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph across the far eastern tropical Atlantic for the next several days.   Formation chance through 48 hours is medium at 60 percent and through 5 days is high at 70 percent.
