In the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean, there is ONE area of interest that we are monitoring for further Tropical development, in the Atlantic Basin.
After Satellite, Radar and Surface Obs analysis, an area of cloudiness that is associated with Showers and Thunderstorms is located about 900 miles East of the Leeward Islands and is associated with a Tropical Wave that is interacting with an upper level low.
Significant development is not expected due to strong upper level winds and elevated vertical wind shear.
This system has a LOW chance (10%) of becoming a Tropical Cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves to the NW at about 15-20mph.
By day 3 conditions may become a little more conducive for development.
This system has a LOW chance (20%) of becoming a Tropical Cyclone during the next 5 days.
Elsewhere, development is not expected during the next 48 hours.
