ORIGINAL STORY: National Hurricane Center Monitoring Low Pressure Area Over Eastern Atlantic Ocean
NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER – On Tuesday morning, the National Hurricane Center is closely monitoring an area of low pressure located over the far eastern Atlantic Ocean several hundred miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands.
As seen on the latest GOES East satellite image, the associated thunderstorm activity has continued to become better organized this morning.
Environmental conditions are conducive for additional development, and only a slight increase in organization would result in the formation of a tropical depression later today while the system moves westward to west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.
Elsewhere, a non-tropical area of low pressure is expected to form within a couple of hundred miles of Bermuda over the western Atlantic Ocean in a few days.
Environmental conditions could support some tropical or subtropical development of the system by the weekend while it moves slowly northward.
