For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

A small area of low pressure with some associated showers and 
thunderstorms is located about 100 miles south of Praia in the Cabo 
Verde Islands. Significant development of this system is not 
expected during the next day or two due to unfavorable upper-level 
winds and marginally warm waters.  The low is forecast to move 
northward or north-northwestward through Thursday before the system 
moves over cool waters, ending development chances.  Locally heavy 
rainfall and gusty winds are possible over portions of the Cabo 
Verde Islands through Wednesday.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.

A tropical wave is forecast to move off the west coast of Africa by 
late Thursday.  This system has the potential for slow development 
over the far eastern Atlantic through the weekend while it moves 
westward at about 15 mph.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
