A pair of tropical disturbances each have a 50 percent chance of developing into storms over the next five days.

The first disturbance is located a few hundred miles east of the Caribbean Sea moving toward the Gulf of Mexico at 20 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center. It has a 50 percent chance of developing into a named storm within five days and, if so, is projected to be off the Yucatán peninsula by the weekend.

BRIEF RESPITE: Cold front provides break from humidity in Houston

A second disturbance off the west African coast has a 70 percent chance to develop in the same timeframe. If it does, meteorologists predict it will be near the Windward Islands by the weekend.

Neither pose any immediate threat to Southeast Texas.
