Tropics Watch 03 SEP
Tropical Storm Maria continues to spin harmlessly in the mid-Atlantic and will probably become a hurricane by tomorrow.
A few of the global computer models are suggesting that an area of disturbed weather that is currently east of the Bahamas will become organized over the next few days and head to the northwest and north such that there would be a tropical cyclone in the vicinity of the Carolinas in five or six days. NHC will be watching this carefully over the next couple of days to see whether the models' forecasts verify.
The low that's moving west on the northern fringe of the ITCZ and had been considered a candidate for tropical cyclone formation continues to show no signs of development. It is of no concern for the next couple of days.
