A tropical wave is located several hundred miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. Some gradual development of this system is still possible over the next few days. However, environmental conditions are forecast to become less favorable by this weekend. This system is expected to move westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph across the tropical Atlantic during the next several days. Formation chance through 48 hours is at 20% and formation chance through 5 days is at 30%.
