Track of Area of Low Pressure

A northward-moving trough of low pressure extending from near the central Bahamas north-northeastward over the western atlantic for a couple hundred miles continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Upper-level winds are becoming less conducive for development. This system has a low chance (10 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

Track of Area of Low Pressure

A trough of low pressure extending from near the southeastern Bahamas northward over the western Atlantic for a couple hundred miles is producing disorganized cloudiness and showers. Upper-level winds are forecast to become less conducive for development during the next day or two as the disturbance moves west-northwestward at about 10 mph. This system has a low chance (10 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

Track of Area of Low Pressure

A weak low pressure system located about 250 miles east of the southeastern Bahamas is producing a large area of disorganized cloudiness and showers. Development, if any, of this disturbance is expected to be slow to occur. This system has a low chance (10 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

Track of Area of Low Pressure

An elongated area of low pressure over the northwestern Caribbean
Sea is producing disorganized cloudiness, showers and thunderstorms. There is no well-defined center of circulation, and upper-level winds are forecast to remain unfavorable for development.

This system has a low chance (near zero percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. However, locally heavy rainfall and flooding are possible over the Cayman Islands and portions of Cuba, southern Florida and the Bahamas.

Turquoise Waters Over Bahama Banks

Bahamas - May 8th, 2012

The waters around the islands of the Bahamas appear bright turquoise that suddenly changes to dark blue due to the Bahama Banks. The Bahama Banks are submerged carbonate platforms that make up much of the Bahama Archipelago. Since the platforms suddenly drop off to great depths, the water above them is shallow and appears lighter in color before suddenly changing to dark blue.

Also visible in the full image are the island-nation of Cuba (below) and the Florida Peninsula, belonging to the USA (above). Both areas are covered by dotted white popcorn clouds, probably due to an increase in photosynthetic activity in the vegetation in the region.
