The Pacific Disaster Center’s (PDC Global) Monday, November 13, 2023, Tropical Cyclone Activity Report…for the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico
CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:
There are no tropical cyclones at the time of this writing
>>> Southwestern Caribbean Sea…
A broad area of low pressure is expected to form over the southwestern Caribbean Sea in the next few days.
Environmental conditions appear favorable for additional development of this system thereafter, and a tropical depression is likely to form late this week while the system begins moving northeastward across the western and central portions of the Caribbean Sea.
Interests in Jamaica, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic should monitor the progress of this system.
Regardless of development, this system has the potential to produce heavy rains over portions of the Caribbean coast of Central America and the Greater Antilles towards the latter portions of this week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 7 days…high…70 percent
