There are no Tropical Cyclones at the time of this writing


>>> Caribbean Sea:

A trough of low pressure located over the northeastern Caribbean Sea is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.

The trough is forecast to move northward over the southwestern Atlantic on Sunday, where a broad area of low pressure is expected to form north of Hispaniola.

Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for gradual development, and a subtropical or tropical depression is likely to form early next week while the system moves generally westward to west-northwestward over the southwestern Atlantic.

Regardless of development, there is an increasing risk of coastal flooding, gale-force winds, heavy rainfall, rough surf, and beach erosion along much of the southeastern United States coast, the Florida east coast, and portions of the central and northwestern Bahamas during the early to middle part of next week.

The disturbance is also expected to bring locally heavy rainfall to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands this weekend. Interests in those areas should monitor the progress of this system.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…50 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…high…80 percent


>>> Central Subtropical Atlantic:

Showers and thunderstorms have become better organized in association with an area of low pressure located several hundred miles east of Bermuda.

Additionally, the system appears to be acquiring some tropical characteristics as it separates from a nearby decaying frontal system. If these trends continue, a short-lived tropical depression or storm is likely to form tonight or on Sunday while the system moves slowly west-northwestward to northwestward over the central Atlantic.

The system is forecast to turn northward and northeastward and merge with a strong cold front by the middle of next week, and further development is not expected beyond that time.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…high…70 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent
