Special Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
155 PM EDT Sun May 31 2020

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

Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the potential for 
tropical cyclone formation over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.

Eastern Pacific Tropical Depression Amanda, centered inland over 
eastern Guatemala, is forecast weaken into a remnant low or 
dissipate by tonight. However, the remnants of Amanda are expected 
to move northwestward within a broader area of disturbed weather, 
and could emerge over the southeastern Bay of Campeche on Monday. If 
the remnants move back over water, environmental conditions appear 
conducive to support some development, and a new tropical depression 
could form while the system moves little through the middle of this 
week. Regardless of tropical cyclone formation, heavy rainfall is 
likely to continue over portions of southern Mexico, Guatemala, El 
Salvador, Belize, and western Honduras during the next few days. For 
additional information on the rainfall threat, see products from 
your national meteorological service. The next Special Tropical 
Weather Outlook will be by 9 PM EDT tonight, or earlier if 
necessary. 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.
