Imminent threat of tropical cyclones in Gulf and Caribbean weakens

New Orleans, Louisiana (CNN) -- The tropical weather systems brewing in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea all became less of a threat Monday, the National Hurricane Center said in its 2 p.m. ET report.The Hurricane Center said a "disorganized" low-pressure system in the Gulf, about 50 miles south of Morgan City, Louisiana, has "near 0 percent" chance of developing into at least a tropical depression before moving inland by late Monday night.

A week after Hurricane Alex marched through Mexico, another tropical disturbance could follow a similar path. The Hurricane Center says a tropical wave in the northwestern Caribbean and southeastern Gulf has a 30 percent chance of organizing into a cyclone in the next 48 hours, with upper-level winds forecast to become more favorable for development as the system moves to the northwest about 15 mph.

That disturbance threatens the Yucatan Peninsula and western Cuba with heavy rainfall and gusty winds over the next day or so, whether it forms a tropical depression or not, the Hurricane Center said.

A third system that had been in the far eastern Caribbean on Monday morning has now dissipated.
