2 disturbances likely to become tropical storms

Two disturbances in the Eastern Pacific have 80% chances of becoming tropical storms within the next five days, according to forecasters with the National Hurricane Center and Central Pacific Hurricane Center.

The first disturbance, associated with a tropical wave a little more than 1,000 miles southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, is “beginning to show some signs of organization,” and a tropical depression or tropical storm will likely form by early next week.
