Track of Low Pressure System

An area of low pressure over the north-central Gulf of Mexico is producing cloudiness and a few squalls primarily south of the center. The low has moved southward since yesterday but it is forecast to drift eastward during the next day or two. Environmental conditions are expected to become less favorable for development, and this system has a low (20 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

Track of Low Pressure System

A low pressure system located near the Alabama coast continues to produce showers and thunderstorms mainly to the south and southwest of the center of circulation. Upper-level winds are expected to be marginally conducive for development of this disturbance over the next couple of days as it moves slowly south-southwestward. This
system has a medium chance (50 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

Low Pressure System

A broad area of low pressure located over the far eastern Atlantic about 325 miles northwest of the Cape Verde islands is producing minimal shower activity (click here for previous images of this system).

The low is moving over cool waters, and significant development is not anticipated during the next couple of days. This system has a low chance (10 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves west-northwestward at about 20 mph. Visible in the upper right corner (best observed upon opening full image) is some dust blowing off the coast of West Africa.

Low Pressure System

Shower and thunderstorm activity is diminishing near a low pressure system located over the far eastern Atlantic just to the east of the Cape Verde Islands. Also visible near the Canary Islands in the upper right quadrant is dust from the Sahara Desert Blowing Off the Coast.

The low is moving toward colder water, and the likelihood of development over the next couple of days appears to be decreasing. This system has a medium chance (30 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves west-northwestward at about 20 mph. Gusty winds and locally heavy rains are still possible over portions of the Cape Verde Islands through Saturday morning.

Low Pressure System

A well-defined low pressure system is located midway between the Cape Verde islands and the Lesser Antilles.

A small area of showers and thunderstorms is becoming more organized around the center of circulation, and upper-level winds appear conducive for a tropical depression to form later today or tonight. This system has a high chance (80 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves westward at about 15 mph.
