Non-tropical low-pressure area with low chance of development forms in the Atlantic

Peak hurricane season runs from August through early October when the ocean waters are typically at their warmest.

A non-tropical area of low pressure has formed along a decaying frontal boundary hundreds of miles of the coats of Newfoundland.

The system is several hundred miles south-southeast of Cape Race. 

The low is producing some showers and storms over the eastern portion of the system.

It has a low chance of development as it drifts south toward warmer water.

It does not pose a threat to Florida. 

As temperatures ocean continue to warm the typical areas of tropical development through July are in the eastern Caribbean, off the coast of the Southeast U.S. and in the Gulf of Mexico. This is where water temperatures are generally above 80°F, and wind shear is relatively low. That said, aside from the non-tropical area of low pressure southeast of Newfoundland.
