For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Storm Edouard, located several hundred miles south of Newfoundland.

  1. A small low pressure system has moved inland over the Florida
    panhandle. The small low is forecast to evolve into a larger low
    pressure system and move northeastward, near the coast of the
    Carolinas. Since the low is currently over land, no development
    is expected today or tomorrow. However, some development will be
    possible if the system moves back over water on Wednesday or
    Thursday.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent.
  1. A tropical wave continues to produce disorganized showers and
    thunderstorms several hundred miles east of the Windward Islands.
    Some slight development of this system is possible today before
    environmental conditions become hostile for development on Tuesday.
    The wave is forecast to move through the Lesser Antilles on Tuesday
    and could produce locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds on some of
    those islands.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…10 percent.
