At one time this feature was a very well-developed tropical low over the far eastern Atlantic, but which then ran into cooler waters, and later still ran into a very imposing wall of dry air and shear. It lost its closed low and has been an open wave for the past few days, but there are some indications that it could be trying to close off again as it encounters a region where surface winds are already blowing out of the north to northwest ahead of it.

The upcoming environment for any redevelopment is pretty marginal, and it probably has less than three days left with which to do anything before shear becomes much too prohibitive again, but it's worth keeping a casual eye on. This little wave should probably have its own tv reality show by now, given all it has been through, while yet remaining intact.
