For the most part, the Atlantic Basin is quiet. However, there is some peculiar activity just off the coast of Africa, SE of the Cape Verde Islands. There has been some enhanced thunderstorm activity which has become better organized. This system looks to be moving into favorable atmospheric conditions for development, at least in the immediate future. This may change within the next few days. Regardless, The National Hurricane Center has given this storm a 30% chance of developing into a tropical system within the next 48 hours.
