The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Potential
Tropical Cyclone Six, located southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.
1. A tropical wave located over the north-central Caribbean Sea is
producing a large area of cloudiness and thunderstorms extending
from Hispaniola eastward to the Leeward Islands, as well as the
adjacent northeastern Caribbean Sea and Atlantic waters. This
activity is forecast to spread westward to west-northwestward, but
strong upper-level winds are expected to prevent any significant
development of this system during the next several days.
Environmental conditions could become more conducive when the system
reaches the eastern Gulf of Mexico early next week. Regardless of
development, this system could produce enhanced rainfall across
portions of Hispaniola, the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos, and
Florida into early next week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.
