FIRST ALERT: Small chance of tropical development this week
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Tropical development remains possible in the central Atlantic this week.
Shower and thunderstorm activity has become more limited associated with a tropical wave located a few hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.
While some gradual development of this system is possible over the next couple of days, environmental conditions are forecast to become less favorable by this weekend. This system is expected to move westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph across the tropical Atlantic during the next several day.
The chance of development remains at 20% for the next two days and 30% for the next five days.
By the end of the week, increasing amounts of wind shear and dry air will lead to much more unfavorable conditions for development.
