Special Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
450 PM EDT Tue Oct 4 2022
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
The National Hurricane Center has initiated advisories on Tropical
Depression Twelve, located a few hundred miles west of the Cabo
1. East of the Windward Islands:
Updated: Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft
indicate that the broad area of low pressure located a couple of
hundred miles east of the Windward Islands does not have a closed
circulation and the center remains ill defined. In addition, the
associated shower and thunderstorm activity is still displaced to
the southeast of the center. Upper-level winds are likely to
become more conducive for development, and a tropical depression
could form during the next couple of days, if the system stays far
enough away from land while moving westward at about 15 mph across
the Windward Islands and southeastern Caribbean Sea. Conditions
are forecast to become more conducive for development later this
week when the system reaches the central and western Caribbean Sea.
Regardless of development, heavy rainfall with localized flooding,
as well as gusty winds, are expected over portions of the
Windward Islands, northern portions of South America, and the ABC
Islands during the next couple of days, and interests in those
locations should continue to monitor the progress of this system.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.
Key messages for the disturbance east of the Windward Islands can be
found on the National Hurricane Center website at www.hurricanes.gov
