Tropical Update

We are tracking a tropical wave located 700 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. Significant development of this system is not expected during the next couple of days. However, conditions could become a little more favorable for gradual development, and a tropical depression could form early next week while this system moves westward and then WNW into the central Atlantic.

* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (20%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: Medium (60%)

We are also tracking an area of showers and thunderstorms located about 200 miles east of the northern Leeward Islands. Right now, there are no signs of a surface circulation. During the next couple of days, the system is expected to move toward the west-northwest where conditions are not favorable for development.

* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (10%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (20%)
