An Eye on the Tropics – Spaghetti Models for 2 Low Pressure Systems

All eyes have been focused on Tropical Storm Fay as she moves westward through the Florida Panhandle. She is currently 35 miles northeast of Pensacola, Florida tracking toward Alabama and Mississippi. (For more on Tropical Storm Fay – click here.)

As of 11 PM EDT, August 23, 2008

Elsewhere in the tropics, a broad area of low pressure is located about one hundred miles east of the Windward Islands, producing showers and thunderstorms. Slow development is possible over the next couple of days as it moves westward.

A tropical wave located about 800 miles east-northeast of the Leeward Islands is producing some showers and thunderstorms. The visible satellite imagery from Saturday afternoon shows a little cyclonic turning with this feature, and slow development is possible over the next couple of days as it tracks westward.
