    The National Hurricane Center continued to track two disturbances Friday afternoon, each of which could become tropical depressions in the coming days.

    One of them, called Invest 92L , is currently spinning off the northeastern Florida coast. It is expected to approach the coast of Florida or Georgia later on Friday, and "could become a short-lived tropical depression," the hurricane center said in a Friday afternoon forecast update .

    AccuWeather meteorologist Andrew Kienzle said, "Regardless of development, this feature will bring building seas, gusty winds and areas of heavy rain and thunderstorms to the southeast U.S. coast."

    Dangerous rip currents will also continue to impact the Southeast coast, said meteorologist Chris Dolce.

    Gulf disturbance could also become depression

    The second disturbance is in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico and has a higher chance for development, forecasters said, putting the odds at 60%. The hurricane center said it could become a tropical depression this weekend as it moves west-northwestward or northwestward toward the Gulf coast of Mexico.

    "Interests along the Gulf coast of Mexico should monitor the progress of this system," the hurricane center said.

    If it strengthens to a tropical storm, it would get the name Beryl .

    The first named storm of the season, Tropical Storm Alberto , made landfall in Mexico early Thursday and had officially dissipated as of late Thursday afternoon. At least four people were reported to have died due to the storm in Mexico.
