NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Thu Aug 31 2023
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane
Franklin, located a couple of hundred miles north-northeast of
Bermuda, on Tropical Storm Idalia, located near the coast of North
Carolina, and on recently upgraded Tropical Storm Jose, located
several hundred miles east-southeast of Bermuda.
1. Eastern Tropical Atlantic (AL94):
Showers and thunderstorms are gradually becoming better organized in
association with an area of low pressure located just west of the
Cabo Verde Islands. Environmental conditions appear conducive for
further development of this system, and a tropical depression is
likely to form during the next couple of days while the system moves
west-northwestward to northwestward across the eastern tropical
Atlantic. Interests in the Cabo Verde Islands should monitor the
progress of this system.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...high...70 percent.
2. Central Subtropical Atlantic (Remnants of Gert):
A weak but well-defined area of low pressure located several hundred
miles north-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands is producing
limited shower and thunderstorm activity. This system has a short
window for further development during the next day or so while it
drifts northeastward or eastward before upper-level winds become
increasingly unfavorable by the weekend.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...low...30 percent.
