Satellite imagery indicates the tropical disturbance currently located over the Bahamas is becomming better organised. However, recent Recon Aircraft data shows the system still lacks a closed low-level circulation, and therefore can not be classified as a Tropical Cyclone yet. The aircraft did report winds of near Tropical Storm force near the centre of lowest pressure, especially in the northern and eastern quadrants. This disturbance may become a Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm at anytime. Regardless of whether a Tropical Cyclone does develop, heavy rains and thunderstorms, as well as squally winds, can be expected in the Watch area through the next 24 hours. Rough surf conditions are also likely along the coasts, leading to dangerous conditions on the shoreline. All interests in the Bahamas and Florida should continue to closely monitor the progress and development of this system over the next few hours as it continues to head to the west should Warnings be required at short notice.
