Much of the Atlantic Basin remains under the influence of strong vertical wind shear, cooling sea-surface temperatures and regions of dry, stable air. These hostile conditions will prevent tropical development across the Atlantic Basin through at least the middle of next week. A decrease in shear over the Caribbean could make that area of the basin a more favorable area for potential development this weekend and early next week. However, there are no weather disturbances approaching the eastern Caribbean at this time and no organized features are showing up on computer projections through the middle of next week.
