105 PM EST TUE JAN 12 2016
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
1. Cloudiness and thunderstorms have become a little more concentrated
and organized near the center of a non-tropical low pressure system
centered about 1100 miles southwest of the Azores. The low is
producing winds to near 60 mph over the southern and eastern
portions of its circulation. Although environmental conditions are
only marginally conducive for development, this system could become
a subtropical or tropical storm within the next day or so. The
cyclone is expected to move eastward to northeastward over the
eastern subtropical Atlantic over the next couple of days.
Regardless of subtropical or tropical cyclone formation, this system
is expected to produce hazardous marine conditions over portions of
the eastern Atlantic for the next few days. For additional
information, see High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather
Service and Meteo France. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook
on this system will be issued by 2 PM EST Wednesday.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent
