I see your from new jersey. the northeast forum covers new york through maine. At Swellinfo, we have mid atlantic covering obx through nj. Maybe post this in the mid atlantic forum if you are talking about new jersey.
storms don't usually develop south of 10 degrees N, simply because conditions aren't favorable. Here's what the NHC says about the area of thunderstorms:
A tropical wave located about 1000 miles east of the Windward
Islands is moving westward near 20 mph. Although this system shows
some signs of organization...upper-level winds are forecast to
remain unfavorable for development.
