SYNOPSIS for the SW N Atlantic including the Bahamas  507 PM EDT Fri May 24 2024  

SYNOPSIS......
 A trough extends from near 28N63W west-southwestward  to weak low pressure of 1012 mb near 25N71W. Another trough  extends from the low southwestward to the southeastern  Bahamas and to eastern Cuba near 20N78W. Scattered to numerous  showers and thunderstorms are presently north of 18N between 61W  and 66W and from 24N to 30N between 66W and 72W. Regarding the  low, although environmental conditions are not conducive, some  slight subtropical or tropical development is possible over the  next couple of days while the system moves generally  northeastward. Otherwise, relatively weak high pressure will  remain over the region for the next few days. The associated  gradient will support moderate winds and seas are possible north  of the Bahamas and off northeast Florida by Mon night as the  high pressure shifts eastward ahead of a cold front that is  expected to move off the southeastern U.S. coast Mon night, move  across the waters east of northern Florida early on Tue, reach  from near 31N79W to east-central Florida early on Wed and from  near 31N78W to 29N79W and stationary to east-central Florida Wed  night.
