Pinpointing the tropics

A broad area of low pressure is expected to form over the western Caribbean Sea in a few days.

Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for some development thereafter, and a tropical depression could form late this week or this weekend while the system moves slowly west-northwestward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea.

It will likely move to the Yucatán Peninsula. The formation chance through 48 hours is low, near 0%. The Formation chance through 5 days is medium at 50%.
