Tropical Update

We are watching a broad, non-tropical low pressure system located a couple hundred miles east of the central Bahamas. There is a slight chance that the system could acquire some subtropical characteristics as it moves northeast over the next day or so. On Tuesday, however, the disturbance is expected to merge with a cold front. Later in the week, this system may have a second opportunity to develop subtropical characteristics if it becomes separated from the front and meanders over the central Atlantic.

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

* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (20%)
