The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane
Ida, located over western Cuba.

several hundred miles east of Bermuda is producing disorganized

expected to be only marginally conducive for development, however,
a tropical depression could still form by early next week. By
midweek, the system is forecast to be absorbed by a frontal system.
The disturbance is expected to drift eastward through tonight and
Saturday, then accelerate northeastward Sunday toward the central
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.

in association with a tropical wave located several hundred miles
east of the Lesser Antilles. However, shower and thunderstorm
activity is limited near the center of the low. Some additional
development of this system is expected, and a tropical depression is
likely to form Saturday or Saturday night before it moves into an

through tonight, then turn northward Saturday.

toward the end of next week as the system moves west-northwestward
to northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
