Monitoring the Atlantic for Tropical Development

5 Jul 2017, 2:31 pm

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) continues to monitor a broad area of low pressure 850 miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. It is producing several showers and thunderstorms, but so far, hasn’t shown any signs of organizing into a tropical system. NHC says the low has a 60% chance to potential to develop into a tropical depression in the next few days as conditions around it favor tropical development.

The low, currently known at 94L, will likely move to the northwest throughout the week. If it is able to become a tropical storm, the name would be Don. The majority of forecast models steer the storm north of the Leeward Islands. In a few days, the low will encounter drier and more stable air which may inhibit tropical development.
