There’s a weak tropical disturbance in the Atlantic, just north of the Bahamas. A tropical disturbance is a cluster of thunderstorms that moves as a group, but does not have circulation. These are common in the Atlantic in hurricane season. This one has a low chance of strengthening into a tropical depression or tropical storm. Steering winds will take it northward in the Atlantic. This system will likely be absorbed by a cold front sometime Wednesday.
Most tropical disturbances do not become depressions. Technology lets us see more of these than ever before.

Hurricane season runs through the end of November. Sometimes a hurricane or tropical storm will linger into December.
