The wave is expected to move off the coasts of Senegal, The Gambia, and Guinea-Bissau later tonight.  Environmental conditions appear somewhat conducive for gradual development, and a tropical depression is likely to form over the eastern tropical Atlantic south of the Cabo Verde Islands by late Saturday or early Sunday while the system moves westward to west-northwestward at about 15 mph.

2.A tropical wave located over the central tropical Atlantic continues to produce a broad area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.  Environmental conditions are expected to be marginally conducive for some slow development east of the Lesser Antilles by early next week while the disturbance moves west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.
