The non-tropical version of Joaquin will continue to move quickly to the east tonight into Friday, then it will slow down. It will also progressively weaken over the next few days. It will move toward the coast of Portugal this weekend and bring gusty winds to coastal Portugal. It will also bring showery rains to all of Portugal and parts of Spain Saturday and Sunday.
The rest of the tropical Atlantic remains devoid of any organized tropical weather features.
New tropical development is not expected across the Atlantic Basin through early next week.
