Bahamas, July 4, 2017 – Nassau – The chances of a tropical depression or storm forming in the Atlantic over the next 5 days have increased to 80% over the last 24 hours. The chances of formation over the next 48 hours have also increased to 70%.
This comes from the NOAA whose early morning satellite images indicate that the cloud pattern associated with the low-pressure system located about 800 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands has not changed very
much in organization. Environmental conditions, however, are
favorable for a tropical depression or a tropical storm to form within the next 24 hours or so while the low moves westward or west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph across the tropical Atlantic.
