ATLANTIC TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK DISCUSSION: 

UPDATED: 0320 PM EDT SEPT 29, 2016
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. A tropical wave is in the E Atlantic extending its axis from 18N25W to 08N26W, moving west at 15 kt over the past 24 hours according to satellite and global model guidance. Abundant moisture and a diffluent wind environment at the middle and upper levels support scattered moderate convection from 12N-19N between 20W-30W...NHC

There are no sign of tropical cyclone formation at this time...RTW
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. A tropical wave is in the Central Atlantic with axis from 14N35W to 10N35W, moving west at 15 kt over the past 24 hours. Latest TPW imagery show dry air in the northern portion of the wave that along dust explains the lack of convection at the time. Isolated  showers are observed ahead of the wave's axis and along and south of 14N between 34W-42W...NHC

There are no sign of tropical cyclone formation at this time...RTW
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. A tropical wave is in the Central Atlantic with axis from 14N36W to a 1011 mb low near 10N47W to 05N47W, moving west at 15 kt over the next 24 hours. The convection observed around these features is mostly related to the proximity of the ITCZ which has scattered moderate showers and thunderstorms south of 12N between 41W-50W...NHC

There are no sign of tropical cyclone formation at this time...RTW

5. A weak tropical wave is in the west Caribbean extending its axis from 19N87W to EPAC near 10N89W, moving west at 15 KT over the past 24 hours. TPW imagery depicts moderate moisture prevailing across the northern portion of the wave but despite this, no significant convection is observed with this wave at this time...NHC

There are no sign of tropical cyclone formation at this time...RTW
