Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Thu Oct 6 2022
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Depression Twelve, located several hundred miles west-northwest of
the Cabo Verde Islands.
1. Southeastern Caribbean Sea:
A broad and elongated area of low pressure located over the far
southeastern Caribbean Sea just off the coast of Venezuela
continues to produce an expansive area of showers and thunderstorms
over the southern Windward Islands, northern South America, and
adjacent waters. While land interaction with the northern coast of
South America may hinder significant development during the next
day or so, environmental conditions are expected to be mostly
conducive for development while the system moves westward at about
15 mph, and a tropical depression is likely to form in the next day
or two by the time it enters the south-central Caribbean Sea.
Additional strengthening is anticipated while the system moves
westward over the southwestern Caribbean Sea toward Central America
late Friday through Sunday.
Regardless of development, heavy rainfall with localized flooding,
as well as gusty winds to gale force, are expected over portions of
the Windward Islands, northern portions of Venezuela including
Isla Margarita, the ABC Islands, and the Guajira Peninsula of
Colombia during the next day or two. Interests in those locations,
in addition to those in Central America, should continue to monitor
the progress of this system.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.

Sea can be found on the National Hurricane Center website at
