Disturbance Fifty Three is located close to the north of Lake Maracaibo in the southern Caribbean moving west at 14 knots. The disturbance is not expected to develop due to unfavorable environmental conditions but will produce scattered showers and thunderstorms across the Windward Islands, Trinidad, Tobago, and northern Venezuela today.
Disturbance Fifty Four has been identified in the central Atlantic around midway between the Leeward and Cape Verde Island moving west-nor'west at 16 knots. This is disorganised and facing adverse environmental conditions and is unlikely to survive the crossing.
