There is currently some activity in the tropics.

(Floater 1)
A well-defined non-tropical area of low pressure is located about 300 miles NE of Bermuda is producing Gale Force winds and scattered showers and thunderstorms. However, the apparent Center of Circulation is very exposed and this system is not showing significant organization. This system could gradually acquire subtropical cyclone characteristics as it moves NE at 10 mph, during the next couple of days.
This system has a Medium chance (30%) of becoming a Subtropical or Tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.
Nevertheless, this system will continue to move to the NE or ENE and stay out at sea, never making landfall in the U.S. So, it will not affect the Gulf Coast.

Elsewhere, tropical development is not expected during the next 48 hours and through the weekend. 

For a continued look into the tropics, follow the link below to the Storm Team 5 Hurricane Center.
