CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:
There are no active tropical cyclones at this time
A broad trough of low pressure located near and north of the Turks and Caicos Islands is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms.
A low pressure area could form within the next couple of days as the trough lifts northward, and there is a slight chance it could briefly acquire subtropical characteristics early next week before merging with a cold front.
Later next week, this system may have a second opportunity to develop subtropical characteristics if it becomes separated from the front and meanders over the central Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…10 percent
