From west to east:
Disturbance Fifty Three is loafing about off the coast of the Carolinas. This is still chatty and lacks any organisation although conditions are becoming favourable for development as it interacts with an eastbound front which may allow this to produce a short-lived performance. This is likely to enhance shower and thunderstorm activity along the coast, however the worst excesses will be offshore. Any development will head safely seaward with little impact ashore.
Disturbance Fifty Four is a day east of the Leeward Islands heading west at 15 knots. This will cause enhanced rain and thunderstorm activity over the islands of the eastern Caribbean this coming weekend. Aerial images show signs of rotation but likely to be outweighed by upper level shear.
Some rain and thunderstorms along the coast of the Carolinas and the Leeward Islands, otherwise stand easy.
