Officials monitoring low pressure in the Atlantic


The National Hurricane Centre is watching a small area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave is located over the far eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean, producing a concentrated area of showers several hundred miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. Some additional development of this system is possible during the next few days while the low moves westward. Upper-level winds are expected to become less conducive for development by this weekend when the system approaches the Lesser Antilles.

Elsewhere, an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms associated with a trough of low pressure located over the Atlantic Ocean within a few hundred miles to the south of Bermuda. Environmental conditions appear conducive for some development of this system, and a tropical depression could form before the end of the week while the system moves west-northwestward and then northward between Bermuda and the east coast of the United States. The system is then forecast to interact with a frontal system on Sunday, which would limit any additional development.
