1th August 2020 – Disturbance 1 is located about 1500 miles east of the Lesser Antilles near 12N, 38W. The system continues to become better organized, and it will likely become a tropical depression later today. Environmental conditions will remain favorable for tropical development over the next few days as the disturbance tracks more towards the west-northwest. The disturbance is expected to weaken as moves closer to the Islands. Present forecasts suggest the system should be in the vicinity of the Northern Leeward Islands around Sunday or Monday. Chances of development has increased to 70%. We will continue to monitor the system as it progresses.
