THURSDAY & FRIDAY

No changes since yesterday...still expecting it to remain quiet across the entire Atlantic Basin through the end of the week.

WEDNESDAY

Tropics remain quiet. Saharan Air Layer has a firm grip on the Atlantic Basin and will continue to prevent development for the near-term.

TUESDAY

It still looks quiet across the Gulf, Atlantic, Caribbean and east Atlantic. No development is expected through Friday.

MONDAY

As it stands now, no areas of tropical development are expected this week. A large area of dry air and dust is encompassing much of the Atlantic suppressing the development of tropical activity.
