Weak Wave in E. Caribbean.....
Several weak tropical waves are moving west or west/northwest from the E. Caribbean across the Central Atlantic. No development is expected in the short term as satellite imagery & upper level data indicates a good deal shear -- mostly from a west or southwesterly direction across a good part of the Atlantic Basin. Conditions might become more favorable -- gradually -- over the next couple weeks.
Meanwhile.. A disturbance off the coast of Mexico in the far E. Pacific is moving northwest with the potential for development.

The latter is a long work in progress that will continue for many year until they're caught up to the present. The NHC has just completed the re-analysis of 1941-1945 -- click ** here ** to view the PDF document.
