A large area of convection formed today NE of the Bahamas and spread south and west as the afternoon progressed. Although the IR signature showed cold, clustered cloud tops, no LLC was apparent and thus no tropical development occurred. No signs of tropical development occurred in either the Gulf or Caribbean basins.
