A broad area of convection (thunderstorms) continues to slowly organize in the central Atlantic. Water temperatures are very warm in this region, however, wind shear is still moderately high, which is temporarily inhibiting the development of this system.

Most of the computer forecasts have this system strengthening over the next 48 hours as it drifts slowly westward.

If this trend continues, we will have our first named storm of the season - Alex. We will be tracking this closely through the week and will bring you more updates!
