Another swirl in the eastern Atlantic

A non-tropical area of low pressure located near the eastern Azores continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms with gale force wind. This system could acquire some subtropical characteristics during the next day or so while it meanders to the east of the Azores.

By late tomorrow, the system is forecast to move northeastward over cooler waters and further development is not expected. Heavy rains and gusty winds will continue across portions of the Canary Islands, Madeira Island, and the Azores over the next day or so.
