Central Subtropical Atlantic (Remnants of Emily): An area of low pressuremore than 1000 miles miles northeast of the Leeward Islands continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms northeast ofits center. Upper-level winds are forecast to become more conducive for development by tomorrow, and this system is likely to regenerate into a tropical depression or tropical storm late this week or this weekend whenthe system moves northward over the subtropical central Atlantic. Disorganizedshowers and thunderstorms continue in association with an area of low pressurelocated several hundred miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands. Environmentalconditions appear only marginally favorable for some slow development throughearly next week while the system moves west-northwestward to northwestwardinto the central tropical Atlantic. An elongated area of showers and thunderstormslocated several hundred miles south of the coast of southern Mexico is associatedwith a trough of low pressure. Environmental conditions appear favorable forgradual development of this system, and a tropical depression is likely to formwithin the next two to three days while it moves slowly to the northwest ornorth-northwest. An area of low pressure could form well south-southwest of thesouthern tip of the Baja California Peninsula within the next day or two.Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for some gradual developmentof this system later this week and this weekend while it moves west-northwestwardover the central portion of the tropical eastern Pacific.
