Five weak systems seaborne with little threat

General overview Saturday 20th September 2015 from west to east -

Disturbance thirty seven is a frontal low pressure system located east of Florida and is moving northeast at 12 knots. There is a slight chance the system could acquire some tropical characteristics as it tracks northeastward over the next day or two. It will pass just east of the Outer Banks late tomorrow, then weaken and merge with another frontal system as it accelerates into the northern Atlantic early next week. This may reach storm strength but won't have any impact ashore.

Disturbance thirty four has curved away from the north east Caribbean and is moving to the north-nor'west at walking pace. This is fairly weak and is expected to be absorbed by a frontal system over the next day or two. Development is not expected.

EDOUARD has weakened into remnant low in the Central Atlantic and will absorbed by an approaching cold front in a day or two. Game over.

Disturbance thirty five is a weak tropical wave centred around 500 miles north of the Amazon delta and moving west at 11 knots. The disturbance is expected to dissipate over the next 2-3 days with no chance of development.

Disturbance thirty six has barely passed the Cape Verde Islands and still yet to organise. This is expected to track west-nor'west with a slender chance of becoming a depression or tropical storm before weakening by Tuesday of the coming week.
