HOLT, Fla., July 16, 2017–The National Hurricane Center is watching a new tropical weather system in the Atlantic Ocean it says is marginally conducive for further development.
Located 1,000 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands, the “westward-moving trough of low pressure” is producing “disorganized showers and thunderstorms.”
After the system passes the Lesser Antilles in a couple of days, the center expects upper-level winds to prevent it from further development.
If needed, an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance plane will investigate the disturbance Monday afternoon.
Hurricane models are forecasting the system will continue on a westward path.
