Monday evening First To Know Tropics check (08/15/2022)

A few scattered disturbances are being monitored in various parts of the eastern and central tropical Atlantic Ocean, but conditions do not favor strengthening of these or other systems present across the waters.

We do closely watch these and other areas in the Caribbean and the tropical Atlantic east of the Lesser Antilles, where systems start to originate leading toward the usual peak formation time frame later this month and through the first part of September.

A modest moisture source in the southernmost Caribbean is capable of moving west-northwest into parts of Central America and possibly enter waters in the far southwestern Gulf, but formation chances by the end of the week remain on the low side.
