Weak tropical wave near Fl.....

A weak trough of low pressure/tropical wave is near Fl. & move west/northwest enhancing showers & t'storms but no tropical development is expected with this feature.

The rest of the Gulf & Caribbean are void of even much in the way of cloud cover let alone tropical activity.  In fact, notice the gray, "popcorn"-like look to clouds in the Central & Eastern Atlantic (east of the Lesser Antilles) below.  Such imagery is indicative of stable mid & upper level air & generally is not conducive for tropical development.  So it looks like we'll stay quiet in the Atlantic Basin for some time.  However, conditions should change the first couple weeks of July.

Meanwhile.. a tropical cyclone has developed in the E. Pacific southeast of the Baja & west/southwest of the lower Mexican coast.  This storm will remain over open water moving W/NW over the E. Pacific.
