Interests in Jamaica and eventually Central America should monitor the progress of this system. This is not expected to impact Florida.

Another disturbance north of Bermuda is producing limited shower and thunderstorm activity as it interacts with a cold front. Upper-level winds are increasing over the system, and the disturbance is expected to merge with the system as it moves eastward. Development of this system is unlikely.

The next named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season is Lisa.

Hurricane season ends Dec. 1.
