(Hurricane Center) -- The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is investigating two areas of clouds and showers in the Atlantic waters and Caribbean Sea.
 
The first system is located about 900 miles away from the Leeward Islands. It is moving northeast at about 10 to 15 mph. 
 
In the NHC report, researchers say the system is associated with the northern portion of a tropical wave interacting with a low-pressure system.
 
Forecasters are giving it a 60-percent chance for development. This system could become a tropical system over the next 48 hours. They say this system has a 70-percent chance of becoming a tropical system within the next five days.

The second area of interest is in the southwestern Caribbean Sea. It only has a 10-percent chance for development. The dry air in place over the Gulf of Mexico makes conditions unfavorable for development of this area of interest.

There's a 30-percent chance that this system could become a tropical cyclone over the next five days.
