We are tracking an area of low pressure several hundred miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands.

Environmental conditions are conducive for development during the next few days.

A tropical depression will likely form by midweek while the system moves westward at about 15 mph.

Formation chance through 48 hours: Medium (50%)

Formation chance through 5 days: High (70%)
