A near stationary front
is draped across the N. & W. Atlantic east of Fl. northeast for hundreds of miles with scattered -- but unorganized -- convection all along the front. No surface low pressure is evident, but this could be area to watch -- especially east of Fl. -- this week.
A huge area of dry mid & upper level air continues from the Caribbean east for hundreds of miles across the Atlantic. In fact, Saharan dust has traveled west all the way to the Lesser Antilles & Puerto Rico. Overall conditions remain unsuitable for significant tropical development as shear generally remains high too.
Shear is still strong over much of the Atlantic Basin exceeding 60 knots(!) over parts of the Caribbean...exceeding 40 knots over the SW Atlantic....& 30+ knots over the Gulf of Mexico....
Tropical waves are struggling as they move west off the coast of Africa. Little development expected at this time with the few waves that are westbound.
