CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:
There are no active tropical cyclones at this time
A well-defined, non-tropical low pressure system located several hundred miles southeast of Bermuda is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms.
Little development is expected for the next day or two due to unfavorable upper-level winds. By late Saturday or Sunday, however, environmental conditions are expected to become a little more conducive for the low to acquire subtropical characteristics while it moves northeastward ahead of a frontal system.
By early next week, conditions are expected to become unfavorable for further development as the system interacts with or becomes absorbed by a frontal system.
