TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
200 PM EDT FRI SEP 18 2015
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Depression Nine, located about a thousand miles east-northeast of
the Lesser Antilles, and on newly formed Tropical Depression Ten,
located about a thousand miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde
1. A broad area of low pressure located east of the northeast Florida
coast is producing a large area of disturbed weather extending from
the eastern Gulf of Mexico across Florida and into the southwestern
Atlantic Ocean as it interacts with an upper-level trough.
Environmental conditions are expected to be marginally conducive for
this low to acquire some subtropical or tropical characteristics
during the next few days as it moves slowly northeastward off the
southeast coast of the United States. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane
Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system tomorrow, if
necessary. Regardless of development, locally heavy rains are
possible today over portions of the Florida Peninsula and coastal
areas of Georgia and South Carolina. For more information on this
system, see High Seas Forecasts and products issued by your local
National Weather Service office.
