Pinpointing the tropics

Eastern Tropical Atlantic

A tropical wave moving off the west coast of Africa is producing an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.

Environmental conditions appear marginally favorable, and any development of the wave should be slow to occur while it moves west or west-northwest across the eastern tropical Atlantic through the end of the week.

Formation chances over the next five days stand at 20%.
