The small low is forecast to evolve into a larger low pressure system and move northeastward, near the coast of the Carolinas. Since the low is currently over land, no development is expected today or tomorrow. However, some development will be possible if the system moves back over water on Wednesday or Thursday.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

 

  1. A tropical wave continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms several hundred miles east of the Windward Islands. Some slight development of this system is possible today before environmental conditions become hostile for development on Tuesday.

The wave is forecast to move through the Lesser Antilles on Tuesday and could produce locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds on some of those islands.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
