Just a short note on an emerging system in a Tropical wave that is emerging in the Atlantic. The NHC site says:
A 1007 MB LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IS LOCATED ABOUT 565 NM SW OF THE CAPE VERDE ISLANDS NEAR 8.5N31W. THIS LARGE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO SHOW SIGNS OF ORGANIZATION...AND COULD BECOME A TROPICAL DEPRESSION DURING THE NEXT DAY OR SO AS IT MOVES WEST-NORTHWESTWARD NEAR 10-15 KT. A MORE CONCENTRATED AREA OF SCATTERED MODERATE/ISOLATED STRONG CONVECTION IS NOW MOSTLY W OF THE CENTER FROM 8N-11N BETWEEN 31W-37W. ISOLATED CLUSTERS OF MODERATE CONVECTION ARE ELSEWHERE FROM 5N-12N BETWEEN 29W-38W. THIS IS ONE OF THE MORE CLASSIC LOOKING CAPE VERDE SYSTEMS WE HAVE SEEN OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS.
While nothing may emerge out of this, because of it’s position far south of us (8.5N) we should keep an eye on this one.
Update: Forecast models currently indicate that this storm will go north.
