We are tracking a broad area of low pressure located about 600 miles ESE of the Windward Islands that continues to show signs of organization. If this trend continues, then a tropical depression or a tropical storm would likely form later today while the system moves WNW at about 20 mph. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the disturbance this afternoon.
