The National Hurricane Center is currently monitoring two areas in the Atlantic Basin for tropical development over the next 5 days. As of this morning, both have a low chance for development at 20 to 30%. The next name on the list is Danielle.

Showers and storms in the Caribbean Sea will have our complete focus over the next week. This area of storminess is moving westward. As the disturbance moves through the Caribbean it will move into a region that is more favorable for tropical development. The GFS model continues to show a threat this disturbance develops into a well-organized tropical system mid to late next week.

The forecast uncertainty is very high at this time and is only worth mentioning. There is no way of knowing yet if this will form into a tropical system, and if it does, where it will be heading.
