Tropical regions: Previous satellite wind data indicated that a small but well-defined area of low pressure in the central Caribbean Sea was producing winds of 25-30 mph. However, rain and thunderstorm activity associated with this system remains disorganized, and nearby dry air is expected to prevent much additional development as the system begins to slowly drift westward over the next few days.
A low pressure area is developing along the frontal boundary to the southeast of Bermuda. This non-tropical low is expected to move southeastward across the subtropical central Atlantic above warmer sea surface temperatures over the next few days, and environmental conditions appear favorable for this system to gradually acquire tropical characteristics. A subtropical or tropical storm could develop by the latter part of this week, as the system continues to move eastward followed by a turn toward the northeast by the end of the week.
