Tropical Update

Showers and thunderstorms have become a little less organized this morning in association with a broad area of low pressure located about 500 miles east of the Windward Islands. Upper-level winds are gradually becoming less conducive, so only some slight development is possible today while the system moves westward. By tonight, upper-level winds are expected to become even less favorable for tropical cyclone formation to occur.

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

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