Franklin, located north-northeast of Bermuda, on Tropical Storm
Idalia, located along the South Carolina coast, and on Tropical
Depression Eleven, located several hundred miles east-southeast of
1. Eastern Tropical Atlantic (AL94):
An area of low pressure located just west of the Cabo Verde Islands
continues to produce showers and thunderstorms that are gradually
becoming better organized. Environmental conditions appear conducive
for additional development of this system, and a tropical depression
is likely to form over the next couple of days while the system
moves west-northwestward to northwestward across the eastern
tropical Atlantic. Interests in the Cabo Verde Islands should
monitor the progress of this system.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...high...70 percent.
2. Central Subtropical Atlantic (Remnants of Gert):
Earlier satellite wind data indicated that a well-defined
circulation has re-developed with the remnants of Gert, located
several hundred miles north of the northern Leeward Islands.
However, shower and thunderstorm activity is currently limited. This
system has a short window for further development later today before
environmental conditions become more unfavorable by this weekend, as
the system drifts slowly northeastward or eastward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...low...30 percent.
