Storm Fiona, located several hundred miles northeast of the Leeward

A tropical wave located about 1100 miles east of the Lesser Antilles
is producing disorganized showers and a few thunderstorms.  The

significant development during the next few days while the
disturbance moves westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph.
Environmental conditions could become more conducive for development
late this week when the system is expected to be near Hispaniola and
the southeastern Bahamas.

Cloudiness and thunderstorms located over the far eastern Atlantic
a few hundred miles southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands are
associated with a low pressure area and tropical wave. Environmental

is likely to form during the next day or two while the system moves
westward and then northwestward over the eastern tropical Atlantic
