NEW ORLEANS — A broad area of low pressure located a couple hundred miles east of the central Bahamas is producing plenty of clouds, but not much rain. There is a slight chance that this system could develop some subtropical features this week as it moves northeast over the next few days. It is forecast to merge with a cold front on Tuesday and then meander over the central Atlantic. It is not a threat to land. NHC is giving this system a low chance to develop.
Elsewhere...the rest of the tropics will stay quiet for the next 5 days
