Watching One Low Pressure Area Over Northern Florida

7/28/2015 5:30:16 AM

The Atlantic basin will continue to remain quiet for much of this week as chances for any tropical development look very slim. The only feature of significance is a stalled frontal boundary off the southeastern U.S. coast extending across Florida into the northeastern Gulf of Mexico.

An area of low pressure has formed over northern Florida along this stalled boundary and the low center will be shifting northeastward through Wednesday into a zone of strong vertical wind shear. Thus, we feel tropical development associated with this low center is unlikely.

Elsewhere across the Atlantic basin, strong wind shear and a large Saharan dust layer continue to inhibit tropical development and likely will continue to do so for the rest of this week.
