TROPICAL UPDATE – An area of low pressure off the coast of Florida/Georgia/South Carolina is worth watching. Although strong wind shear aloft may prevent tropical development, there is a significant low-level spin evident with deep convection displaced to the south. The general movement on this disturbance will be to the northeast, remaining over the Atlantic. There’s also a stronger tropical wave near the Cape Verde Islands, but significant development looks unlikely at this point.
