Please keep the victim of the 35W tragedy in Minneapolis and their loved ones in your prayers...

Separately, this is from, circa 9AM, 2 August 2007...

The tropical wave which moved through the Lesser Antilles on Wednesday is now located in the Eastern Caribbean near 14 North and 65 West. Aircraft reconnaissance were unable to locate a closed low-level circulation on Wednesday. However, conditions remain somewhat favorable for development as this wave continues to move west at around 15 knots, into the central Caribbean. Showers and thunderstorms will continue along this tropical wave, regardless of whether or not development occurs.

Another area of concern is the Northern Gulf of Mexico. A frontal boundary has stalled out, stretching from the Florida Peninsula, to just south of Louisiana. It is possible that a weak area of low pressure may develop along this frontal boundary, and drift northward toward the coast around Apalachicola, Florida. Although there is only a slight chance for tropical development, showers and thunderstorms will be likely over the next few days along the eastern Gulf Coast. Locally heavy rainfall is possible across northern Florida, southeastern Alabama, and southern Georgia as tropical moisture continues to lift northward across the area.

Tropical waves can also be found at 35 west and 50 west, both south of 15 north. Neither of these waves show any immediate signs of organization or development. Another large wave is preparing to move off of the African Coast; however, there is a lot of of dry air and Saharan Dust in its path which will inhibit any development over the next day or two.
