Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 PM EDT Wed Sep 20 2017

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Jose, located a couple of hundred miles south of Nantucket, Massachusetts, and on extremely dangerous Hurricane Maria, located near the northwest coast of Puerto Rico.

Satellite data indicate that the remnants of Lee, located about 1000 miles east of the Leeward Islands, have become less organized today and the associated winds have decreased below gale force. Environmental conditions are currently not conducive for tropical cyclone formation, but they could become a little less hostile in a day or two. This low is expected to move northward over the central Atlantic Ocean during the next few days. * Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.

&& Additional information on the remnants of Lee can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service, under AWIPS header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and available on the Web at http://www.opc.ncep.noaa.gov/shtml/NFDHSFAT1.shtml.
