Tropical development in the Atlantic Basin not likely through the upcoming weekend

7/27/2016 10:50:35 AM

Generally quiet conditions will continue over the tropical Atlantic Basin over the next seven days with only one area of slight concern within the basin.

There is a tropical wave that recently emerged from Africa which is fairly vigorous with an area of cloudiness and showers associated with it. This wave is going to encounter dry air and strong wind shear, which will keep it from becoming a more organized system. Nevertheless, we will continue to monitor this wave as it moves westward across the Atlantic in the coming days.
