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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane 
Paulette, located several hundred miles south of Cape Race, 
Newfoundland, on Hurricane Sally, centered near the northern Gulf 
coast, on Tropical Storm Teddy, located over the central tropical 
Atlantic, and on Tropical Storm Vicky, located over the eastern 
tropical Atlantic. 

1. An area of low pressure over the southwestern Gulf of 
Mexico is producing showers and thunderstorms that are showing some 
signs of organization  Upper-level winds are forecast to 
gradually become more conducive for development, and a tropical 
depression could form late this week while the low meanders over the 
southern Gulf of Mexico for the next several days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

2. Showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure  
located a few hundred miles south-southeast of the Cabo Verde 
Islands have changed little during the past several hours. 
Environmental conditions are conducive for development of this 
system, however, and a tropical depression is likely to form during 
the next few days while the system moves generally westward at 10 to 
15 mph.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

3. A non-tropical area of low pressure is located over the far 
northeastern Atlantic Ocean a few hundred miles northeast of the 
Azores.  This system could acquire some subtropical characteristics 
while it moves southeastward and eastward at about 10 mph during 
the next few days.  For more information on this system, see 
High Seas Forecasts issued by Meteo France. 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
