The Atlantic basin remains quiet with no organized tropical systems and no tropical development expected through at least this weekend.

The tropical season still has several weeks left as it runs through the end of November, so more tropical activity is possible farther down the road. But for the time being, all is quiet in the Atlantic.

There's a broad area of disturbed weather on this Tuesday evening located over the eastern Pacific Ocean a few hundred miles south of the coasts of Guatemala and El Salvador, and it continues to produce widely scattered showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for gradual development of this system during the next several days, and a tropical depression is likely to form by late this week or this weekend while the system moves west-northwestward to northwestward near or just off the coast of southern Mexico. It has a low (10 percent) chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a high (70 percent) chance during the next five days.

We are monitoring tropical waves tracking east to west across the Atlantic basin. At the moment, cyclone development is NOT expected in the Atlantic, thru Sunday October 24, 2021. Tropical waves will bring squally weather across the affected region; thus, enjoy the rain and cooler temperatures. NOTE: There are 6 weeks of hurricane season left this 2021 year. Thus, cyclone development remains possible across the Atlantic basin.

The high level cloud that has been developing in the Western Caribbean is now starting to come to an end, the last of it is presently stationary over Belize, but with the easterly Caribbean winds under it, there is still a lot of rain about, most of it is now north of Belize, but there is a broken line of rain over coastal regions and moving inland.

Looks as if much of today will be cloudy, some heavy cloud and some isolated rain areas for much of the day.
