However,  a tropical disturbance has a low chance of forming in the open waters of the east-central Atlantic Ocean…within the next 2-5 days

According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC)…

A non-tropical area of low pressure located about 1000 miles east-southeast of Bermuda is producing some disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity northeast of the center.

This low could gradually acquire some subtropical or tropical characteristics during the couple of days while it meanders over the central Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Azores.

Regardless of development, this low is expected to remain well to the southwest of the Azores for the time being…and shouldn’t impact any land areas this week.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent
