FLORIDA, United States, Friday July 31, 2015 – One of the two systems forecasters were monitoring in the Atlantic has dissipated while the other has weakened significantly, practically eliminating any chance of it developing into a tropical storm.
The elongated area of low pressure located east of the northern Florida coast has already been absorbed by a cool front, while the elongated area of low pressure west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands remains weak and disorganized.
The Miami-based National Hurricane Centre said this morning that conditions for it to develop have become less favourable.

“Hostile winds above are going to prevent anything from developing here as the surface low merges with a frontal boundary tomorrow and accelerates out to sea,” forecasters at the Weather Channel said.
There have been three tropical storms so far this Atlantic hurricane season, which began July 1 and will run until November 30 – Ana, Bill and Claudette – none of which affected the Caribbean.
