    Jerry weakened to a tropical depression Wednesday evening over the central Atlantic. The system will continue to move in a northeast direction through this weekend and is not likely to reintensify.

    The moisture from Jerry will help bring showers to the Azores over the weekend.

    Jerry became a weak tropical storm on Monday, but dry air in the Atlantic inhibited strengthening beyond that.

    The northwest Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico is being monitored for possible tropical development late this week.

    An area of thunderstorms in the northwestern Caribbean continues to move northwestward. There is a threat for this disturbance to become a tropical system and affect parts of the southern U.S. this weekend.
