Low pressure in Atlantic moving away from US; tracking warmth for Thanksgiving

Published: Updated:

A low pressure system along a frontal system is producing disorganized showers and storms several hundred miles east-southeast of Bermuda.

The low is expected to interact with an upper-level trough later today, detach from the front tomorrow, and try to acquire subtropical characteristics Friday while it moves southward over warmer waters.

This will not be an impact to Southwest Florida or the United States. Right now, the National Hurricane Center is giving it a 10% chance of development.

Elsewhere, far out over the eastern Atlantic, there is a new area that is forecast to have a low pressure system develop within it by early next week. The National Hurricane Center is giving this area a 20% chance of tropical development. Regardless, this is very, very far away from the United States and will be no worry to us.

There is less than one week left in the official 2020 Atlantic hurricane season. Please don’t let your guard down, as we can have “out of season” storms. You can trust the Weather Authority to stay on alert!


Locally, we’re tracking a relatively calm travel forecast, with partly cloudy skies, and comfortable temperatures overnight as lows fall down into the 60s!

As we look ahead to Thanksgiving Day, it’ll be a bit warmer under partly sunny skies. Our next big cool-down doesn’t come until a cold front mid next week. Enjoy!
