Quiet Weekend Across the Atlantic Basin

Oct 31, 2014 11:56 AM

The area of low pressure that was well north of the Virgin Islands has fallen apart. The deep moisture associated with this feature will track east of Bermuda.

The rest of the Atlantic Basin remains relatively quiet. We see no support for tropical development across the Atlantic Basin through at least Tuesday of next week.
