Special Tropical Weather Outlook

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the potential for
subtropical development over the central Atlantic.
Central Subtropical Atlantic:
A non-tropical low pressure area located about 925 miles
east-southeast of Bermuda continues to produce an extensive area
of showers and thunderstorms. However, the system remains
embedded within a frontal zone, which is expected to become even
more pronounced later today as the low begins to move
east-northeastward at 20 to 25 mph toward colder waters and
interacts with a mid-latitude trough. Therefore, it is unlikely
that the low will transition to a subtropical or tropical cyclone.
Nevertheless, significant non-tropical development of this low is
expected during the next couple of days, and additional information,
including hurricane-force wind warnings, can be found in High Seas
Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.
This will be the last Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued on
this system. Regularly scheduled Tropical Weather Outlooks will
resume on May 15, 2023, while Special Tropical Weather Outlooks
will be issued as necessary during the off-season.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.
