Atlantic Tropical Daily Planner 080217

Tropical Depression Emily degenerated into a non-tropical low pressure center overnight. The low is not expected to acquire tropical characteristics as it moves northeastward across the western Atlantic over the next few days. Feature 10L, a wave over the eastern Atlantic, has shown no signs of organization over the last 12 hours. Chances of development are very low as a result of dry air to the immediate north, and the expectation that wind shear will increase in its path within 72 hours. Farther west, an elongated surface trough over the east-central Gulf of Mexico is being monitored, but there have been no signs of development overnight. Development is unlikely given that northwest shear is on the increase, and the surface trough will meander into the Florida panhandle by this evening. Late this week and this weekend, a series of waves exiting Africa may need to be monitored although there are no conclusive signs of tropical cyclone formation within model guidance at this time.
