Synopsis for the the SW N Atlantic including the Bahamas

.SYNOPSIS...A weak area of low pressure centered between the
southeastern coast of Florida and Andros Island will continue to
support scattered showers and thunderstorms over the waters W of
72W the next few days. The low is forecast to move near or over
Florida later today, then back offshore near the coast of east-
central Florida over the weekend or early next week.
Environmental conditions appear conducive for tropical cyclone
development once the system moves back over the Atlantic waters.
Otherwise, gentle to moderate southeasterly winds will dominate
the region, except over the NW forecast waters where the low
pressure will support fresh to strong winds on Sun.
