(NOAA) SHOWERS AND SQUALLS ASSOCIATED WITH THE TROPICAL WAVE AND THE AREAOF LOW PRESSURE ARE SPREADING OVER THE WINDWARD ISLANDS AND THEEASTERN CARIBBEAN SEA. THERE ARE NO SIGNS OF TROPICAL CYCLONEFORMATION AT THIS TIME BUT CONDITIONS APPEAR TO BE FAVORABLE FOR ATROPICAL DEPRESSION TO FORM DURING THE NEXT DAY OR SO AS THE SYSTEMMOVES WESTWARD. A RECONNAISSANCE PLANE WILL INVESTIGATE THE AREAAGAIN ON THURSDAY...IF NECESSARY. This is a report from the National Hurricane Center from Miami. The satellite image is from Accuweather.
There is also another area of disturbed weather in the northern Gulf of Mexico at this time and is attached to an old mid latitude frontal boundry, which is a tell tale sign of tropical development. So, that will have to be watched closely.
More on the tropics and our steamy forecast later tonight and tomorrow. Our prayers go out to those affected by the tragedy in Minneapolis tonight once again.
