Tropical Update

Widespread cloudiness and showers extending from the southeastern Bahamas northward over the southwestern Atlantic for a few hundred miles are associated with a sharp trough of low pressure. Although limited development of this system is anticipated tonight and Thursday, conditions are forecast to become a little more conducive for tropical cyclone formation over the weekend, and a tropical depression is likely to form as the system moves slowly toward the west-northwest across the Florida Straits and southeastern Florida, and into the eastern Gulf of Mexico. This disturbance will likely produce periods of locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds across the Bahamas through Friday, and across Florida during the weekend. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system Thursday afternoon, if necessary.

* Formation chance through 2 days: Low (50%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (70%)

 

A broad low pressure system, associated with a tropical wave, is located about 600 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. This weak disturbance is accompanied by limited shower activity that has been gradually diminishing today. This system is forecast to move westward toward unfavorable upper-level winds, and tropical cyclone formation is not anticipated.

* Formation chance through 2 days: Low (0%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (0%)

 

A tropical wave located between the west coast of Africa and the Cabo Verde Islands is forecast to move quickly westward during the next several days. Some development is possible over the weekend or early next week while the system moves over the tropical Atlantic

* Formation chance through 2 days: Low (0%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (40%)
