There is a tropical wave that is located in the central Atlantic located about 800 miles west southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. This has a 70% chance of developing into a tropical system (depression or tropical storm) within the next 48 hours.

Spaghetti models take this potential system mainly west northwest and the general trend is for it to go north of the Caribbean.
