CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:
There are no active tropical cyclones at the time of this writing
Eastern and Central Subtropical Atlantic:
A small non-tropical area of low pressure is located more than 1400 miles east of Bermuda. While this system is currently only producing limited shower activity and environmental conditions are only marginally favorable, recent satellite wind data indicates it has maximum sustained winds near 40 mph.
This low is forecast to move quickly westward at 20-25 mph across the subtropical Atlantic towards warmer waters, and could acquire some subtropical or tropical characteristics by early next week.
