SYNOPSIS for the SW N Atlantic including the Bahamas  1113 AM EDT Fri Jul 23 2021  

 The Atlantic ridge is centered on a 1028 mb high north  of the area near 34N41W and extends W-SW to central Florida.  Moderate to fresh trades will prevail south of 25N through Sun.  Low pressure along a frontal boundary will sink southward today  through the weekend off the Georgia and NE Florida coasts.  Environmental conditions are forecast to be marginally conducive  for some gradual development over the weekend and into early next  week while the system drifts offshore of the southeastern United  States. Regardless of development, showers and thunderstorms and  moderate to fresh winds can be expected over the weekend off the  Florida coast as the ridge remains in place.
