There are no areas of major near-term concern in the tropical waters of the Atlantic basin for the upcoming weekend.

A wave of moisture may impact the Bahamas and Florida early next week, but it's mainly driven by an upper-level system and won't develop tropically.

Late next week, some long-range guidance indicate a disturbance in the western Caribbean or Yucatan channel.  While it's way too early to determine the legitimacy of the outlook so far ahead, we'll continue to monitor future forecast data relating to the possible feature.
