In the Tropics

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a pair of disturbances in the open Atlantic that will not impact the local area.

Central Subtropical Atlantic: Shower and thunderstorm activity remains disorganized in association with a sharp trough of low pressure located less than 400 miles east of Bermuda. Environmental conditions are only marginally conducive for some tropical or subtropical development of this system over the next day or so while it moves generally westward, passing near Bermuda. Afterwards, the system is forecast to turn northward towards the cooler waters of the northwestern Atlantic, and further development is not anticipated by that time as upper-level winds increase.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.

Southwestern Atlantic: An upper-level trough currently located over the Bahamas is forecast to help induce the formation of a surface trough of low pressure to the north of Puerto Rico in a few days. Thereafter, environmental conditions could be conducive for some subtropical development of this system as it moves generally northward through the latter half of this week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
