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.
