Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, a well-defined non-tropical surface low pressure system that is located about 550 miles Northeast of Bermuda was showing signs of developing, but thunderstorms have decreased. The chances of this developing are decreasing as it is moving into cooler waters and a more stable environment. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 50%, of becoming a subtropical or tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves East-Northeastward at 10-15mph. A large area of cloudiness, showers, and a few thunderstorms over the Northwestern Caribbean Sea stretching into the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean is associated with a surface trough. While upper-level conditions are not favorable for development, heavy rain is likely over the Cayman Islands, Cuba, Bahamas, and South Florida. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. In the Eastern Pacific, a broad low pressure system located about 250 miles West-Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico has become a little better organized and this system will likely become a tropical depression during the next day or so as it begins to move slowly Eastward. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a high chance, 80%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Heavy rainfall, flash flooding, and mudslides will continue over portions of Southwestern and South-Central Mexico for the next couple of days.
Hope yall are having a great Tuesday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and those affected by damaging weather events.
