...SATURDAY JULY 4 2020 12:08 AM EDT...
The following is a special update regarding the surface tropical low pressure located midway between the United States east coast and Bermuda...referred to as area of interest #2 in full birdseye view post #50. Nighttime shortwave infrared satellite imagery suggests a better defined low-level cloud swirl with persistent thunderstorm bursts on the south side of the swirl. Therefore it appears a tropical depression could be forming...and I have raised my odds of tropical cyclone formation in the next 24 hours to 60%. Interests in Bermuda should monitor the progress of this disturbance as gusty winds and heavy rains...with possible tropical storm conditions should further strengthening happen...could occur tonight into the early morning hours of Sunday.
