(Miami, FL) -- Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center are watching an area of showers and thunderstorms located a few hundred miles to the southwest of Bermuda. They say the system appears to be less organized, and the potential for a tropical depression to form is diminishing. However, conditions are still conducive for some development before the end of the week, while the system moves west-northwestward and then northward between Bermuda and the east coast of the United States. The disturbance is then forecast to interact with a frontal system on Sunday, which should limit any additional development.
NHC has issued the 800 pm EDT Tropical Weather Outlook, increasing the probabilities into the High category for the strong disturbance located about 1000 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.
