SOUTHEASTERN N.C. — Two tropical depressions are brewing in the Atlantic Ocean as of midday Thursday.

Tropical Depression 13 will likely have impacts on the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico beginning Friday night, according to an 11 a.m. Thursday NOAA update. The storm could bring storm surge, wind impacts, and rainfall to Florida over the weekend. North Carolina does not fall in this storm’s predicted impact cone.

North Carolina is well outside of Tropical Depression 14’s impact cone. This storm is west of Nicaragua as of midday Thursday. It is predicted to impact Mexico Saturday morning and the coast of Texas by Monday morning.

There’s also a disturbance off the African coast, with a 20% chance of forming into a cyclone within 48 hours.
