For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane
Ophelia, located over the eastern Atlantic Ocean several hundred
miles southwest of the Azores.

northern Leeward Islands is producing disorganized showers and
thunderstorms, mainly to the east of the surface low. Upper-level
winds are not expected to be conducive for significant development
during the next couple of days while the system moves west-
northwestward at 15 to 20 mph and passes near or north of the
Leeward Islands and the Virgin Islands. However, environmental
conditions could become a little more conducive for some development
early next week while the system begins to move northward over the
west-central Atlantic Ocean.
