MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- We remain very serene and relatively quiet in the tropical Atlantic basin, and there's no expectation for tropical systems to develop anytime this week.

Massively dry conditions above the Atlantic, coupled with some Saharan dust aloft, have zapped the necessary moisture content from the region.  This will keep any masses of moisture at a bare minimum with extremely low opportunity to maintain organization.
