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

since yesterday near the center of a low pressure system centered
about 850 miles south-southwest of the Azores. If this organizing
trend continues, advisories will be initiated on the system later
today. The low is producing winds to near 50 mph over the southern
portion of its circulation, and is expected to move northeastward
and northward over the eastern Atlantic over the next few days.
Interests in the Azores should monitor the progress of this system,
and strong gusty winds could begin to affect portions of those
islands by late Thursday or early Friday. For additional
information, see High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather
Service and Meteo France. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook
on this system, if needed, will be issued by 2 PM EST Thursday.
