Low Pressure System Located Southwest of Cape Verde Islands

Share This

Since the evening of Sunday August 16th, the cloudiness and showers associated with a broad area of low pressure located several hundred miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands are showing some signs of what could eventually turn into a potentially dangerous hurricane heading for the Yucatan Peninsula.

Environmental conditions appear conducive for development of this system during the next few days and a tropical depression could form by midweek while it moves westward.



IMPORTANT: There are no tropical cyclones in the Atlantic at this time.
