200 AM EDT Wed Aug 4 2021

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

A small and weak area of low pressure, with limited shower and

thunderstorm activity, is passing near the Cabo Verde Islands.

Significant development of this system is not expected during the

next day or so due to unfavorable upper-level winds and marginally

warm waters. Afterwards, this system is forecast to move northward

or north-northwestward over cooler waters, ending its development

chances. Locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds are possible over

portions of the Cabo Verde Islands through today.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.

A tropical wave is forecast to move off the west coast of Africa by

late Thursday. Environmental conditions appear somewhat conducive

for some slow development over the far eastern Atlantic through the

weekend into early next week while this system moves generally

westward at about 15 mph.

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

* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
