Today in Weather History (NWS Wakefield)
2002 Severe Thunderstorm Outbreak: East Central VA, Eastern Shore
We are tracking an elongated low pressure system located over the central tropical Atlantic Ocean about midway between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles. Some slow development of this system is possible, and a tropical depression could form well east of the Lesser Antilles by early next week while the low moves WNW at 10 to 15 mph. Upper-level winds are forecast to become less conducive for development by Tuesday and Wednesday as the system approaches the Leeward Islands.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (20%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: Medium (40%)
