Eying the Tropics

We're one week away from the official start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season (June 1), and we already have the first stirrings of tropical activity. A non-tropical (i.e., its center is colder than its surroundings as opposed to warmer) low pressure system is currently about 500 miles South-Southwest of Bermuda.
The showers and thunderstorms associated with this low are disorganized and not particularly strong. However, conditions are such that strengthening and organizing of this system is possible in the next two days. If this happens, we could have our first named tropical system of the season, Alex. Check back here for updates!
