Here's the latest from the National Hurricane Center on the lone area of interest in the tropics, as of Thursday afternoon.

A broad area of low pressure located several hundred miles north of Puerto Rico continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms primarily east of its center. Recent satellite wind data indicates this low remains elongated on its west side and strong upper-level winds are expected to prevent significant development of this system during the next day or so. On Friday, this low is forecast to accelerate to the east-northeast while merging with a mid-latitude trough and further tropical development is not anticipated after that time.

The 2021 Atlantic hurricane season ends November 30.
