Environmental conditions appear only marginally conducive for further development of this system, but a tropical depression could still form during the next several days while it moves west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph across the central tropical Atlantic.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…40 percent.

* Formation chance through 7 days…medium…50 percent.

Over the next few days environmental conditions appears mostly favorable for additional development while it moves toward the west-northwest or northwest at

around 10 mph across the eastern tropical Atlantic, and a tropical

depression is likely to form over the weekend before environmental

conditions become unfavorable for development early next week.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…50 percent.

* Formation chance through 7 days…high…70 percent.

Some slow development of this system is possible over the weekend into early next week as it moves generally west-northwestward at 10-15 mph across the Lesser Antilles into the northeastern Caribbean Sea.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent.

* Formation chance through 7 days…low…20 percent.


Residents should monitor these systems closely and work to complete any seasonal preparations in case this system develops into a threat for the Virgin Islands.
