Area of Disturbed Weather in Carribean Becoming Less Organized

An area of disturbed weather (within the yellow circle on the image above) over the Northwestern Carribean Sea has become slightly less organized overnight, and conditions in the atmosphere are forecast to become even less favorable for development during the day today.  As a result, the National Hurricane Center has cancelled the Air Force Reconnaisance mission that was scheduled to investigate the system this afternoon.

This system will continue to drift slowly Northwest to Northward over the next few days, producing widespread heavy rains over portions of Haiti, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and Cuba.  This could result in dangerous flash flooding and mudslides across much of this region.
