Tropical Update: Watching two areas of storminess

Tropical Update: Watching two areas of storminess

The remnants of Tropical Storm Emily continue to push northeastward, across the southwestern Atlantic Ocean, as an area of low pressure that no longer has tropical characteristics. No further impacts are expected to the United States.

However, the cold front that helped spawned former Tropical Storm Emily is still stalled over the Gulf of Mexico, producing numerous showers and storms.

One cluster of these storms is being watched by the National Hurricane Center. There is a less than 10-percent-chance that this storminess will be classified as a Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm.

Regardless of development, moisture will overspread the southeastern United States as this front lifts back northward.

There is a large, but very disorganized, tropical wave approaching the Caribbean Sea. This system also has a less than 10-percent-chance of developing tropically.

By later next week into Mid-August, conditions may become more favorable for tropical development across the western Atlantic.
