Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM 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 over the northeastern Caribbean Sea approaching Puerto Rico.

Showers and thunderstorms continue near a low pressure area associated with the remnants of Lee located about 1000 miles east of the Leeward Islands. While this system is producing gale-force winds, the associated thunderstorm activity has become less concentrated during the past few hours. Although the enviromental conditions are marginal, only a small increase in the overall organization of the thunderstorms would result in the regeneration of Lee. This low is expected to move northward over the central Atlantic Ocean. * Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 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.
