A system that the National Hurricane Center has been tracking is now well east of the New Jersey coast and is expected to travel further east over time. In the latest view provided by the GOES-East weather satellite, shower and storm activity has become better organized and concentrated. The system, now located about 250 miles southeast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, is unlikely to become tropical in nature. While satellite wind data indicate that the system has gale-force winds, there are currently no signs of a closed circulation which would prevent tropical cyclone generation. According to the National Hurricane Center, little additional development of this system is expected before it merges with a frontal system tonight.
