CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:
There are no active tropical cyclones
A broad area of low pressure located several hundred miles north of Puerto Rico continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms primarily east of its center.
Recent satellite wind data indicates this low remains elongated on its west side and strong upper-level winds are expected to prevent significant development of this system during the next day or so.
On Friday, this low is forecast to accelerate to the east-northeast while merging with a mid-latitude trough and further tropical development is not anticipated after that time.
