In the Tropics:
There is a disturbance in the Atlantic, but it is not a concern for the local area.
Central Atlantic Ocean:
A broad trough of low pressure continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the central Atlantic several hundred miles south-southeast of Bermuda. Development, if any, of this system should be slow to occur due to generally unfavorable environmental conditions while the disturbance moves slowly north-northwestward or northward during the next few days.
