There will be no tropical developments in the Gulf, Caribbean, or the western Atlantic through midweek.

A low-pressure disturbance a few hundred miles south of the Cape Verde Islands in the eastern Atlantic will continue to show some potential for organization into a tropical depression or storm over the next couple of days.  It is more than a thousand miles from the Lesser Antilles and more than a week away from any sort of threat to the U.S. mainland, and future conditions do not necessarily favor rapid strengthening.

If the system achieves tropical storm intensity, it will be named Dorian.
