    FYI some disturbances out there (weather)

    If something develops relatively close to Florida, the preferred track appears to be across Florida and into the Gulf of Mexico. A more northerly track towards the Carolinas is also one of the model solutions. If something develops further from Florida, the preferred track is northeastward towards Bermuda. We'll just have to wait and see where the focus of development may be along the old front

    ATLANTIC OCEAN...
    STRONG MID TO UPPER LEVEL TROUGH HAS PUSHED OFF THE U.S. EAST
    COAST WITH ITS SOUTHERN MOST PORTION EXTENDING SOUTH TO NEAR 30N
    NEAR THE GEORGIA/NE FLORIDA COAST. SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE AND
    DRY UPPER LEVEL AIR HAS BUILT INTO THE MID ATLANTIC STATES
    BRINGING VERY PLEASANT WEATHER. IN THE REGION OF CONFLUENCE
    BETWEEN THIS HIGH AND THE ATLC RIDGE TO ITS SOUTH LIES A COLD
    FRONT THAT EXTENDS FROM A 1008 MB LOW NEAR 34N57W TO A 1012 MB
    LOW NEAR 29N75W TO CENTRAL FLORIDA. ALTHOUGH THE ASSOCIATED
    SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY IS CURRENTLY POORLY ORGANIZED
    WITH THE 1012 MB LOW ALONG THE FRONT...THIS SYSTEM WILL BE
    MONITORED AS SOME SLOW DEVELOPMENT IS POSSIBLE. THERE ARE
    SEVERAL UPPER LEVEL FEATURES IN THE ATLC...NONE OF WHICH ARE
    GENERATING ANY ORGANIZED AREAS OF CLOUDINESS MUCH LESS SHOWERS.
    AN UPPER RIDGE AXIS EXTENDS EAST FROM CENTRAL FLORIDA TO NEAR
    72W. AN UPPER TROUGH IS EXTENDING NE THROUGH CUBA AND THE
    BAHAMAS INTO THE ADJACENT WATERS. UPPER RIDGING DOMINATES THE
    AREA FROM 10N TO 32N BETWEEN 52W AND 68W. A FEW SMALL/BENIGN
    UPPER LOWS LIE E OF THIS AREA...NEAR 27N48W...26N35W AND THE
    LAST NEAR 15N33W. AN UPPER RIDGE STRETCHES FROM THE COAST OF W
    AFRICA OUT TO NEAR 35W WITH THE AXIS ALONG 20N.
    ESSENTIALLY...DRY STABLE AIR DOMINATES THE MAJORITY OF THE AREA.
    AT THE SFC...FAIR WEATHER UNDER HIGH PRES RIDGING IS THE THEME
    WITH THE RIDGE AXIS EXTENDING FROM A 1020 MB HIGH NEAR 27N32W TO
    ANOTHER 1020 MB NEAR 27N56W ACROSS THE BAHAMAS INTO THE GULF OF
    MEXICO. A WEAK 1016 MB LOW N OF THE AREA NEAR 35N29W HAS A SFC
    TROF WHICH EXTENDS TO 29N37W. THIS LOW IS EMBEDDED IN THE DRY
    ENVIRONMENT MENTIONED SQUEEZING OUT ONLY ISOLATED SHOWERS NEAR
    THE LOW AND TRAILING TROF.
