There are no tropical cyclones
Eastern Tropical Atlantic:
A tropical wave continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the eastern tropical Atlantic a few hundred miles south-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.
Gradual development of this system is possible and a tropical depression could form by the middle or latter portion of the week before environmental conditions become less favorable by this weekend.
This system is expected to move westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph across the tropical Atlantic during the next several days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent
