Potential Late Season Development
Sat Nov 27 2004 08:30 AM
An upper level low pressure system located about 1200 miles southwest of the Azores has been drifting slowly westward for the last couple of days and has developed a surface gale circulation near 26.4N 44.4W at 27/12Z. The gale center is currently stationary with good low level banding features, however , significant convection is removed to the north through east of the center. Wind shear is nil to light southwesterly in the area of the storm center and is expected to remain that way through Sunday evening.
Development of a late season subtropical storm is possible over the weekend.
