For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

An area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave located over
the eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean more than 600 miles southwest of
the Cabo Verde Islands is producing a small area of showers and
thunderstorms. Some slow development of this system is possible
through the middle of the week while it moves a little faster
toward the west and then west-northwest at about 20 mph.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.

A surface trough interacting with an upper-level low is producing a
broad area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms about 600 miles
east-southeast of the Georgia coast. Surface pressures remain high
across the area, and significant development of this system is not
anticipated due to dry air and unfavorable upper-level winds. The
disturbance is expected to move westward today, and then
west-northwestward at about 15 mph on Monday, reaching the coast of
the southeastern United States by late Monday.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.
