In the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean, there are a couple areas of interest that we are monitoring for further development in the Atlantic Basin.
Over the FAREastern Atlantic Ocean, there is a broad area of low pressure that is located several SWof the Cape Verde Islands. This area is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. We are starting to see some organization as it starts to tighten up and not be as Elongated.
There is potential for a Tropical Depression to form later today or tomorrow.
Shortly thereafter we will start to see upper level conditions become less favorable for further development. This disturbance will move into an area where upper-level winds will become less conducive for development during the next couple of days as it moves West to WNW around 10mph.
There is a MEDIUM chance (50%) of this disturbance becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours and a MEDIUM chance (50%) during the next 5 days.
