Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Thu Aug 24 2023
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Storm Franklin, located to the east of the Turks and Caicos
1. Central Subtropical Atlantic (Remnants of Emily):
An area of low pressure located more than 1000 miles east-southeast
of Bermuda (the remnants of former Tropical Storm Emily) continues
to produce a large but elongated area of disorganized showers and
thunderstorms. Upper-level winds are generally conducive for
development today, and this system is likely to regenerate into a
tropical storm over the next couple of days as the system moves
northward over the subtropical central Atlantic. By this weekend,
the system is anticipated to merge with a frontal boundary north of
the Gulf Stream. For additional information on this system,
including gale warnings, see High Seas Forecasts issued by the
National Weather Service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...high...70 percent.
2. Eastern Tropical Atlantic (AL92):
Disorganized showers and thunderstorms continue in association with
an area of low pressure located several hundred miles west of the
Cabo Verde Islands. Despite marginal environmental conditions, slow
development is possible and a tropical depression could form by
early next week while the system moves west-northwestward to
northwestward into the central subtropical Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...medium...40 percent.
3. Northwestern Caribbean Sea:
A broad area of low pressure, originating along the East Pacific
coast of Central America, is forecast to move into northwestern
Caribbean Sea by this weekend. Some gradual development of this
system is possible thereafter into early next week, and a tropical
depression could form while it moves slowly northward, entering the
eastern Gulf of Mexico.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...medium...50 percent.
