There are no organized tropical features across the Atlantic Basin at this time. A weak low pressure center that is currently several hundred miles to the west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands continues to move westward and latest satellite imagery shows this area of disturbed weather is poorly organized. It is moving through an area of dry, stable air that is preventing consistent thunderstorm development.
Despite being in a low shear environment and over reasonably warm sea-surface temperatures, the dry, stable air continues to prevent further development. As the system moves farther west it will encounter deeper dry and stable air. As a result we are not expecting this feature to develop any further.
Meanwhile, there is a weak area of low pressure centered just off the coast of northwestern Florida. Due to unfavorable upper level winds and the system's proximity to land, tropical development of this system appears unlikely prior to it moving onshore in the coming days.
The rest of the Atlantic Basin will remain fairly quiet over the next several days.
