Tropical Update

We are watching a broad area of low pressure located several hundred miles south of Bermuda. Strong upper-level winds are expected to inhibit development of the system for the next day or so after the low merges with a frontal system. By late Wednesday or Thursday, the system could become separated from the front, allowing it to possibly develop some subtropical characteristics while it meanders over the central Atlantic.

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

* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (30%)
