TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
800 PM EDT WED AUG 31 2016

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane
Gaston, located well west of the Azores, on Tropical Depression
Eight, located east of North Carolina, and on Tropical Storm
Hermine, located over the south-central Gulf of Mexico.

A broad area of low pressure, associated with a tropical wave, is
located over the far eastern Atlantic a few hundred miles west of
the Cabo Verde Islands.  This wave is expected to be in an
environment of very dry air for the next few days, which should
prevent significant development during that time.   Environmental
conditions could become a little more conducive for slow development
on Sunday or Monday when the wave is near the Lesser Antilles.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent
