Tropical Cyclone Activity Report – Atlantic Ocean / Caribbean Sea / Gulf of Mexico

There are no active tropical cyclones at the time of this writing

However, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) reports that a surface trough of low pressure, interacting with an upper-level low continues to produce an elongated area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms…about 700 miles southwest of the Azores.

Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for a non-tropical low to form during the next day or so, and the system could gradually acquire some subtropical characteristics by the middle of next week…while it moves slowly northeastward.

This tropical disturbance is being referred to as Invest 96L, and here’s what the computer models are showing

This area of disturbed weather poses no threat to land.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent
