Disturbed Weather Near The Cape Verde Islands and Low Pressure Off the U.S. Southeast Coast Being Monitored

7/29/2015 11:45:16 PM

A tropical wave that moved off the African coast with a weak low pressure area continues to move westward. This system has a swirl of clouds and showers just south of the Cape Verde Islands. This feature will move westward into a narrow area of low shear but weak instability and moisture. If this system can survive the not so ideal atmosphere it could reach the Lesser Antilles Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. There is some chance this system might evolve into a weakly organized tropical system. However, the drier air and marginal ocean water temperatures will limit development.

An area of low pressure that formed over a weak frontal boundary across Florida has moved northeast to a position just northeast of Jacksonville Florida. Strong vertical wind shears will limit further development of this system as it moves north northeast during the next few days.

The rest of the Atlantic Basin including the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean looks fairly quiet through the upcoming weekend into early next week.

Islands.  Although this system is currently producing a large area
of showers and thunderstorms, further development, if any, will be
slow to occur while it moves westward near 15 mph during the next
several days.
