ORLANDO, Fla. — Two tropical disturbances have been detected in the Atlantic Ocean as one of them closes in on the southeastern tip of Florida, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The closer of the two storms, located just east of the Florida Keys, has a 70% chance of developing into a tropical depression over the next five days, the NHC said in its 8 a.m. update.

However, the NHC said things could speed up with a 40% chance of the system experiencing tropical maturity in the next 48 hours.
