In the Eastern Atlantic
Disturbance 35 is an area of low pressure in the eastern Atlantic near 18.4N/27.0W, or about 160 miles northwest of the Cape Verde Islands. It is moving to the west-northwest at 17 to 20 mph. No significant development is expected during the next day or two, but there is a chance of some development in a few days. Although the disturbance will reach warmer waters in a couple of days, forecasters expect wind shear and dry air to increase as well. This will prevent this system from becoming a strong tropical storm over the next 5 days. This disturbance is not an immediate threat to any land areas.
