Tropical Update

We are watching a non-tropical low pressure area located several hundred miles west of the Azores. This system is forecast to move south over slightly warmer waters, and it could acquire some subtropical characteristics during the next day or so. Environmental conditions are expected to become unfavorable for any further development by Thursday night when the low is forecast to move back over colder waters.
