Tropical Update

A vigorous low pressure area associated with a tropical wave is forecast to form between the coast of Africa and the Cabo Verde Islands on Thursday. Conditions appears to be favorable for subsequent additional development, and a tropical depression is likely to form by the weekend while the system moves westward or west-northwestward near the Cabo Verde Islands and the adjacent Atlantic.  This system is expected to bring rains and gusty winds to those islands in two or three days, and interests in that region should monitor the progress of this disturbance.

*Formation chance through 48 hours: Medium (40%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: High (70%)
