We are keeping a close eye in the eastern Atlantic for possible development of a tropical wave that just came off the coast of Africa. Satellite data is showing that the area has become a bit better defined in the last few hours and that the disturbance is producing winds of about 35mph. Could this be our next depression or even potential tropical storm?? If it does it looks a bit unlikely that it will hold together due to the environment ahead of it not being very conducive for development. Stay tuned for further tropical updates from EWV!
