The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane Paulette, located near Bermuda, on Tropical Depression Rene, located over the central Atlantic, on Tropical Storm Sally, centered over the north-central Gulf of Mexico, and on Tropical Depression Twenty, located over the east-central tropical Atlantic.

1. A weak area of low pressure over the west-central Gulf of Mexico continues to produce limited shower activity. Development of this system is not expected due to strong upper-level winds while it moves slowly southwestward and then southward over the western Gulf of Mexico during the next few days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.

2. An elongated area of low pressure located a couple of hundred miles west-northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands continues to produce an area of showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions are conducive for a short-lived tropical depression to form on Monday while the low moves north-northwestward at 5 to 10 mph. Development is not expected by Tuesday when the system is forecast to encounter strong upper-level winds and move over colder waters.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

3. A tropical wave near the west coast of Africa is producing disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity. Environmental conditions appear to be conducive for slow development of the system this week as the wave moves westward at about 10 mph over the far eastern tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

All fairly quiet around us at present, the Caribbean winds are light and from the south, a light surface "Tiger" wind from the SW and a few high level clouds from the NE, causing some clashing just off the Belize north coast line, some might have a little rain in them.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, but clouds developing later and could be some rain areas this afternoon or evening.
