Tropical Development Possible

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday, August 28


In the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean, there is an area of interest that we are monitoring for further development in the Atlantic Basin.

There is an area of Cloudiness, Showers and Thunderstorms over the Southern tip of Florida and surrounding areas that is associated with a Mid-Upper level Low Pressure System. There are no signs of any surface circulation. There is a very LOW chance of any development during the next 48 hours as this system moves North during the next 48 hours and dissipates inland.

Extended Forecast
Shower & Thunderstorm activity halfway between the Cape Verde Islands and the Windward islands has diminished during the past 24 hours. However, healthy environmental conditions remain in place and appear to be conducive for gradual development as this disturbance approaches the Lesser Antilles by early next week. There is a LOW chance (20%) of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days.

Model guidance is suggesting that a Tropical wave will move off the coast of Africa and into the Eastern Atlantic on Friday. This system could find its self in and environment that would support development.
Elsewhere, development is not expected during the next 48 hours.
