For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
1. An extratropical low pressure system located over the central
Atlantic Ocean about 900 miles east of Bermuda is producing a large
area of gale-force winds and maximum winds of hurricane force.
Shower activity is currently limited near the center, but this low
could gradually acquire some subtropical or tropical characteristics
during the next few days while it moves southeastward and then
eastward into the eastern subtropical Atlantic. Regardless of
subtropical or tropical cyclone formation, this system is expected
to produce hazardous marine conditions over portions of the central
and eastern Atlantic for the next few days. For additional
information, see High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather
Service. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook on this system
will be issued by 2 PM EST Monday.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent
