MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) --  A couple of waves of disturbed weather are being monitored:

  • In the open Atlantic, a minor area of unsettled conditions (far right side of satellite image) is moving west.  Forecast modeling suggests gradual development of this system over the next several days as upper winds remain generally light, and moisture levels stay somewhat adequate.
  • The leftovers of Tropical Depression Four (the small circular cloud blob on the left of the satellite image) should remain disorganized in the near-term future, but the moisture can provide additional clouds and developing rain for parts of the Florida Straits and the Gulf of Mexico toward the end of the week and the weekend.  Chances for re-development of the system into a full-fledged tropical depression appear low at this point.

The remainder of the Atlantic basin is void of any imminent tropical cyclone formation for a few days.
