Hurricane Hunters are scheduled to investigate the disturbance Tuesday afternoon.

Computer models show Potential Tropical Cyclone Two heading just north of South American on a projected path toward Nicaragua.

Meanwhile, in the eastern Atlantic, a disorganized tropical wave about 1,000 miles east of the Windward Islands has a 20% chance of development within the next five days.

Its track is uncertain in the coming days.

And in the Gulf of Mexico, an area of low pressure is located over the north-western Gulf.

Some development of the system is possible as it drifts at 5 - 10 mph approaching the coast of Texas this week. It has a 40% chance to develop over the next two to five days.

The next named storm will be called Bonnie.

Hurricane season runs until Dec. 1.
