Disturbance 2. Central Tropical Atlantic - KEEP AN EYE ON THIS ONE
A tropical wave is located several hundred miles east of the Windward Islands and moving westward at 15-20 mph. Gradual development of this system is forecast during the next several days as the system approaches the Windward Islands, and a tropical depression could form by the latter part of this week as the system moves into the eastern and central Caribbean sea. Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent and formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.
Disturbance 3. Central Subtropical Atlantic - NO THREAT TO US
An area of low pressure is located over the central subtropical Atlantic, about 950 miles west-southwest of the westernmost Azores. Environmental conditions appear marginally favorable for additional development, and a tropical depression is likely to form within the next day or so before upper-level winds become less conducive later this week. The system should move generally northward or northeastward while remaining over the open waters of central subtropical Atlantic. Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent and formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.
