Tracking a tropical wave located over the far eastern tropical Atlantic several hundred miles southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands. Environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development over the next several days. A tropical depression could form later this week while the system moves west at 10 to 15 mph across the eastern and central tropical Atlantic Ocean.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (10%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: Medium (60%)

A non-tropical low pressure system, the remnants of Odette, is located a couple of hundred miles southeast of Newfoundland. This low could acquire some subtropical characteristics by the middle of this week as it moves slowly east and then SE over warmer waters across the north-central Atlantic Ocean.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (0%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (30%)
