Disturbance nineteen still organising

Disturbance nineteen is 120 miles east of San Juan, Puerto Rico and has picked up speed, no making a north-nor'westerly course at 20 knots. Despite previous promise, accelerated ground speed has hindered overnight development thus this is not yet organised enough to be considered a tropical depression. Nevertheless, this is still expected to reach tropical storm status by the time it reaches the south-eastern Bahamas on Saturday night or Sunday morning.

After that, continued strengthening is expected. The system is expected to remain east of the Gulf of Mexico, but there is still a lot of uncertainty in forecasts at this time.

Disturbance twenty one is about a day short of mid-Atlantic still battling dry air to the north of the convergence zone at is moves slowly west at 5 knots. Development is not expected. Stand easy.
