Watching For Tropical Development

(Jacksonville, FL) Most of the Atlantic basin remains unfavorable for development, except for a area close to home. An area of showers and thunderstorms has flared up and slowly gotten better organized, but hurdles do remain. There is plenty of dry air surrounding the system to the west which is hindering some of the thunderstorm activity. Secondly, there is an upper level low to the system's east. This upper low could increase the shear as we head into midweek.
