CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:
There are no active tropical cyclones at the time of this writing
>>> Central Tropical Atlantic…
Showers and thunderstorms remain disorganized in association with a gale-force low pressure area located about 700 miles northeast of the northern Leeward Islands.
Environmental conditions still could support tropical cyclone formation during the next few days while the system moves northwestward and then northward at 10 to 15 mph over the central subtropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…40 percent
* Formation chance through 7 days…medium…50 percent
>>> Western Atlantic…
Shower and thunderstorm activity continues in association with a gale-force non-tropical low pressure system located over the western Atlantic several hundred miles south of Nova Scotia.
The low is forecast to move quickly toward the east-northeast at 30 to 35 mph, reaching colder waters overnight. As a result, this system is unlikely to become a tropical storm.
