Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Tue Sep 1 2020

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Depression Fifteen, located more than 100 miles southeast of 
Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. 

1. A well-organized cluster of showers and thunderstorms associated 
with a tropical wave continues to move quickly westward across the 
central Caribbean Sea. Although the disturbance does not yet have a 
well-defined circulation center, ship observations indicate that 
tropical-storm-force winds are occurring in the northern portion of 
wave to the southeast of Jamaica, which will spread near or just 
south of Jamaica later this morning and into this afternoon. 
Environmental conditions are expected to become a little more 
conducive for development, and a tropical depression or a tropical 
storm is likely to form during the next day or so before the 
system reaches Central America Wednesday night. Locally heavy rains 
and gusty winds are possible on Jamaica today, and interests there, 
as well as in northern Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, and 
the Yucatan Peninsula, should monitor the progress of this system. 
An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is currently en route 
to investigate the disturbance.

Potential tropical cyclone or tropical cyclone advisories will 
likely be issued later today, along with watches and warnings. 
Additional information on this system can be found in High Seas 
Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

2. A tropical wave is expected to emerge off the coast of Africa in a 
day or so.  Gradual development of this system will be possible 
through the end of the week while it moves slowly westward over the 
far eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.
