Tropical Update

Showers and thunderstorms have become a little more concentrated near the center of a large non-tropical low pressure area located several hundred miles west-northwest of the Azores. This system could acquire some subtropical characteristics over the next two to three days while it moves slowly south to SE over slightly warmer water. Environmental conditions are expected to become unfavorable for any further development Thursday night when the low is forecast to move back over colder water.

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