Tracking the Tropics: Relatively quiet now
Meteorologist Jamie Kagol
Cape Coral, Fla. - The tropics are relatively quiet with no named storms, only two areas of disorganized showers & thunderstorms.
The first is located over the far eastern tropical Atlantic about 400 miles south-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands.
There may be gradual development of this disturbance during the next couple of days, but as it continues moving to the west-northwest it will encounter stronger wind shear and a less favorable environment.
The second area of disorganized showers & thunderstorms is located a few hundred miles south-southeast of Bermuda and moving to the north at 10 mph.
Environmental conditions are expected to be marginally conducive for development during the next several days and has a low chance (20%) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days.
Neither of these disturbances pose any threat to SWFL.
