A tropical wave located about 300 miles south-southeast of the Cabo
Verde Islands continues to produced an area of cloudiness and
disorganized showers and thunderstorms. The disturbance is expected
move westward across the tropical Atlantic during the next several
days, and some gradual development of this system is possible by
early next week when it reaches the western tropical Atlantic.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.
Some of the models are bullish about this system.

We truly won’t have a grip on the track of this wave for the next few days at least. As of now we know this system may eventually pose a threat to the U.S, but like always there’s a lot dictating the track. The strength/how fast is strengthens these next few days will be critical.

A tropical wave is producing an area of disorganized showers and
thunderstorms a few hundred miles south of Cabo Verde Islands.
This wave is expected to move westward during the next several
days, and it could become a tropical depression early next week
when it reaches the western tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.

Just about a classic NC/SC pattern here. + heights over SE Canada and the NE bermuda ridge upper low in the deep south

May I be the first to say how much I dislike this picture for all the reasons you just mentioned. If right...it will not end well for the SE coast.

Once you extend the atlantic ridge through bermuda and bridge it to the expanding heights in the NE there is no way out

Very similar to the 0z eps/euro and the 500mb setup isn't dissimilar to what we have seen this summer where the big positive heights go into the NE. Obviously there are ways to miss here but you don't usually see fairly climo favored looks at d7-10

Yeah that H5 pattern is a yikes. It reminds me of some of those patterns that Webber (and maybe others?) have been posting and saying "it's a good thing it's not August". Well, we're knocking on the door of August and might see that pattern that has been showing up.

Good news I would much rather see Hugo tracks for a storm that hasn’t formed vs one that has formed nearing Herbert box. There is very little to see here other than one mngr trying to stir the pot.
Only talking about the models. Hows that hurricane going for Hawaii

A tropical wave is producing a broad area of cloudiness and
disorganized showers and thunderstorms several hundred miles
southwest of Cabo Verde Islands. The wave is expected to move
westward at about 15 mph during the next several days, and a
tropical depression is likely form early next week when the system
reaches the central tropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.
5 day chances up to 70%

Certainly seems like a few options here.
Option 1: Storm wraps up and gains strength quick and moves north quicker allowing it to beat the high building in and safely recurve.
Option 2: Gain strength but slow down and get trapped underneath the ridge on the east coast.
Option 3: Stay relatively weak long enough to go south of the islands and ultimately meander its way to the gulf

Just my opinion atm

So far the 12z Euro seems to be following option 3

Be careful you might get called a pot stirrer :)

Euro is going to likely be similar to the 0z with the farther south track vs the gfs
Tuesday Looks to be a pivotal day. By then we should know if it follows a more Euro like evolution with a weaker and south path. If we are showing Isaiah underneath the islands by Wednesday night I would say EC chances would be waaayyyyy down
