NEW ORLEANS — An area of low pressure located a couple hundred miles southeast of Bermuda is producing disorganized showers and storms. It is along a cold front and battling strong wind shear. This is preventing it from developing. It is expected to break away from the front on Thursday. Once that happens, there is a slight chance that this system could develop some subtropical features as it moves northeast across the central Atlantic into the weekend. NHC is giving this system a low chance to develop. This is not a threat to the U.S.
Elsewhere...the rest of the tropics will stay quiet for the next 5 days
