1st tropical disturbance of season has low chance of development

The National Hurricane Center predicts a small chance of development.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — We are monitoring an area of disturbed weather in the Atlantic near the Turks and Caicos Islands. 

While it may look impressive on the satellite imagery, the National Hurricane Center is only giving it a 10% chance of developing as it moves north-northeastward over the next few days.

The disturbance is associated with an upper-level trough and an upper-level low, both of which are not conducive to development.  

There is not much shear near the system now, but as it moves northward it will run into quite a bit of wind shear that should limit any chances of development.
