Low risk of system developing
THE RISK OF tropical storm formation remains low for the area of low pressure which is currently in the Atlantic Ocean.
In the 2 a.m. release by the National Hurricane Centre, the system is not expected to show significant development over the next two days or so as associated shower activity remains limited.
However, officials note “conditions could become a little more favourable for development when the system moves slowly westward across the central tropical Atlantic”.
The low pressure system is currently located about midway between the Lesser Antilles and the Cape Verde Islands. (SAT)
