In the Tropics:

As of now we are not tracking any direct threats to the Gulf coast. Until cyclone formation, models are highly uncertain if/when and where systems will develop.

Central Tropical Atlantic:
A broad and elongated area of low pressure is located over the
central tropical Atlantic Ocean.  Although the associated shower
and thunderstorm activity has increased somewhat since yesterday,
it currently lacks organization.  Environmental conditions are
expected to be generally conducive for gradual development, and a
tropical depression is likely to form later this week while moving
toward the west and then west-northwest at around 10 mph, toward the
waters east of the Leeward Islands.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

Central Atlantic:
A small low pressure system located about 600 miles east of Bermuda
continues to produce occasional, disorganized shower activity.
Strong upper-level winds and dry air are expected to limit
significant development of this system while it meanders over the
central Atlantic during the next few days, and the low is likely to
dissipate by midweek.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.

Northwestern Caribbean Sea:
A trough of low pressure could develop over the northwestern
Caribbean Sea during the middle part of this week.  Environmental
conditions could support some slow development of the system
thereafter while it moves generally west-northwestward over the
northwestern Caribbean Sea and toward the Yucatan Peninsula of
Mexico.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

Eastern Tropical Atlantic:
A tropical wave is forecast to move off the west coast of Africa
Monday or Monday night. Some gradual development of the system is
possible after that time while it moves generally westward across
the far eastern tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
