MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- A concentrated spot of moisture in the far southern Caribbean just north of Panama has minimal chances for future development, mainly because it is so close to land in central America.

There are other disturbances in the southern latitudes in the north Atlantic.  None of these are showing immediate signs of organizing.  However, some long-range forecast guidance show a developed low in the open waters late this week or early next week.  There is too much variability in the data to exactly determine what form the system will take or where it will go.

A stretch of cloudiness from the southern Gulf into the mid-Atlantic region is associated with faster upper winds and not likely to become a tropical or subtropical system at this time.
