Chances wind down for tropical development

. (.)

From the National Hurricane Center: Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the potential for subtropical development this week over the central Atlantic.

A non-tropical low pressure area located about 925 miles east-southeast of Bermuda continues to produce an extensive area of showers and thunderstorms. However, the system remains embedded within a frontal zone, which is expected to become even more pronounced later today as the low begins to move east-northeastward at 20 to 25 mph toward colder waters and interacts with a mid-latitude trough.

Therefore, it is unlikely that the low will transition to a subtropical or tropical cyclone. Nevertheless, significant non-tropical development of this low is expected during the next couple of days, and additional information, including hurricane-force wind warnings, can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.

This will be the last Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued on this system.
