Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Wed Oct 5 2022
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Depression Twelve, located several hundred miles west of the Cabo
East of the Windward Islands:
A broad area of low pressure located near the southern Windward
Islands continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers
and thunderstorms. Radar imagery from Barbados and surface
observations indicate that the system has not become any better
organized since yesterday. However, upper-level winds are forecast
to become more conducive for development, and a tropical depression
is likely to form over the next several days if the system remains
over water while moving generally westward at about 15 mph over
the southeastern and southern Caribbean Sea. An Air Force
reconnaissance mission is currently en route to investigate the
system this morning.
1. Regardless of development, heavy rainfall with localized flooding,
as well as gusty winds to gale force, are expected over portions of
the Windward Islands, northern portions of South America, and the
ABC Islands during the next couple of days. Interests in those
locations, in addition to those in Central America, should continue
to monitor the progress of this system.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.
Key messages for the disturbance east of the Windward Islands can be
found on the National Hurricane Center website at www.hurricanes.gov
