NOAA's GOES-13 satellite captured an image of the tropical Atlantic Ocean on August 3 at 7:45 a.m. EDT with three tropical systems. The visible image shows Tropical Storm Ernesto in the eastern Caribbean Sea, a low pressure area (Low 1) near Florida's southeastern coast with a 10% chance of development, and a low pressure area in the eastern Atlantic (Low 2), about 175 miles south of the Cape Verde Islands that has a 30% chance of development over the weekend. The image was created by NASA's GOES Project, located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
