ELSEWHERE IN THE TROPICS
It’s becoming increasingly unlikely that anything will come of a small, weak area of low pressure a few hundred miles southwest of Bermuda. The storm activity surrounding it has decreased significantly, and strengthening will be hindered over the next five days due to dry air and high wind shear. The National Hurricane Center has lowered the chance of development to 10%.
