For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
Tropical development is not anticipated through at least the end of the week, mainly due to a broad area of Saharan dust over much of the Atlantic basin.
There are a few waves moving westward through the basin, but none of those waves show any signs of organizing.
A broad trough of low pressure is associated with a dissipated frontal system over Alabama and Georgia on this Wednesday evening, and is forecast to move offshore of the southeastern United States coastline on Friday. Environmental conditions are forecast to be marginally conducive for some gradual development over the weekend and into early next week while the system meanders offshore the coasts of South Carolina, Georgia, and northeastern Florida. It has a near zero chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a low (30 percent) chance during the next five days.
