AREA TO WATCH
FROM THE NHC: A large non-tropical low pressure system centered just north of the Madeira Islands is continuing to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms. This low is expected to meander over the next day or so and could acquire subtropical characteristics during that time. Afterward, environmental conditions are forecast to become unfavorable for further development. Regardless of subtropical formation, this system will continue to produce strong winds and locally heavy rains in the Madeira Islands through Tuesday. Additional information on this system can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by Meteo France.
