TROPICS UPDATE: we are watching two disturbances. One is moving towards the Bahamas. This is a disorganized area of showers and thunderstorms with only a 10% chance of forming into anything in the next 5 days as it moves northwestward. After that, it will move northward along the east coast of the US before moving back out into the Atlantic. The other disturbance is in the eastern Atlantic. It now has a 50% chance of forming into a tropical depression in the next five days as it moves westward across the Atlantic. We will watch both of these, but neither are an immediate threat to our forecast.
