This NOAA satellite image taken Monday, August 01, 2011 at 10:45 AM EDT shows a spiral cloud pattern just east of the Lesser Antilles. These clouds develop around an area of low pressure that has a high, 90%, chance of tropical storm formation as it moves west-northwestward at 15 mph. Meanwhile, a tropical wave extends over the Yucatan Peninsula and into Honduras and Guatemala, kicking up widespread showers and thunderstorms. To the north, a stationary front lingers over the Southeast and brings scattered showers and thunderstorms to the northern Gulf of Mexico. (AP PHOTO/WEATHER UNDERGROUND) less
