Tropical Weather Outlook

NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL

200 PM EDT Thu Jun 24 2021

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

A strong tropical wave located over the far east Atlantic off the

African coast is producing a broad area of showers and

thunderstorms. As the system moves west-northwestward into the

central Atlantic Ocean, conditions appear only marginally conducive

for development due to relatively cool ocean temperatures. However,

a small tropical depression could still form by early next week.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

Recent satellite-derived surface winds indicate that the small area

of low pressure located about 100 miles east-southeast of Barbados

has degenerated into a trough. In addition, shower and thunderstorm

activity has diminished with this system. Unfavorable upper-level

winds are expected to prevent development of this disturbance while

moving toward the west-northwest at about 10 mph. Even though

development is not expected, the disturbance could produce increased

shower activity and some gusty winds while moving across the Lesser

Antilles over the next couple of days.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days...low...near 0 percent.
