In the Tropics:

The Storm Station is monitoring two areas of potential development in the tropics. Low chance of formation expected over the next 5 days.

Near the Windward Islands:
A trough of low pressure located near the Windward Islands is
producing disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity. This
system is expected to move westward at about 15 mph during the
next several days, and environmental conditions could become more
conducive for slow development when it moves across the central and
western Caribbean Sea early next week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

Eastern Tropical Atlantic:
A tropical wave located between the west coast of Africa and the
Cabo Verde Islands is producing a large area of disorganized showers
and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions could support some slow
development of this system through early next week while it moves
westward across the eastern and central tropical Atlantic at 15 to
20 mph.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
