SYNOPSIS for the SW N Atlantic including the Bahamas  958 PM EDT Wed Jun 19 2024  

SYNOPSIS......
 A small area of low pressure has formed about 300  miles east of the northwestern Bahamas this evening with  disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity. While environmental  conditions are only marginally conducive due to nearby dry air,  further development of this system is possible while the low moves  west-northwestward and approaches the northeastern coast of  Florida or Georgia early on Friday. Regardless of development,  fresh to strong NE to E winds and rough seas will prevail across  the waters N of 26N through Thu night. High pres will build in the  wake of the area of low pressure supporting gentle to moderate winds  through early next week.

Active Systems: 
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Storm Alberto, located over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. 

Southwestern Atlantic Ocean (AL92):
A small area of low pressure located about 250 miles east of the 
northernmost Bahamas is producing disorganized shower and

* Formation chance through 7 days...low...30 percent.

Southwestern Gulf of Mexico:
A broad area of low pressure is forecast to form near the Yucatan 
Peninsula of Mexico on Friday.  Environmental conditions appear to 
be conducive for gradual development thereafter, and this system 
could become a tropical depression over the southwestern Gulf of 
Mexico this weekend while it moves slowly west-northwestward or 
northwestward.
