Four areas in the Atlantic Basin being watched for possible development


There are four areas in the Atlantic Basin being watched for possible development.


In the Eastern Tropical Atlantic, there is a low west of the Cabo Verde Islands. Environmental conditions appear favourable for further development of this system, and a short-lived tropical depression is likely to form this weekend.


There is a low halfway between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles. The low is not likely to develop anytime soon and the formation chance through the next seven days is low.


A tropical wave located just east of the Windward Islands is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Some gradual development of this system is possible and a tropical depression could form during the early and middle parts of next week.


An area of disturbed weather located near the northwestern and central Bahamas is expected to move into the Gulf of Mexico by early next week, where a broad area of low pressure is expected to form. Some slow development of this system is possible, and a tropical depression could form as it moves westward and approaches the western Gulf of Mexico coastline by the middle of next week.


There have been five storms so far this season. The last one Don. The next named storm will be Emily.
