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

The National Hurricane Center has issued the final advisory on
Post-Tropical Cyclone Joyce, located several hundred miles south
of the Azores.

A tropical wave is producing a large area of disturbed weather more
than 1200 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles. Environmental
conditions are expected to be somewhat conducive for some slow
development of this system through Friday while the disturbance
moves westward to west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph. Over the
weekend, however, upper-level winds are expected to become
unfavorable for tropical cyclone formation to occur.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
