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

Satellite images indicate that the circulation of a low pressure
system located about 750 miles south-southeast of Cape Race,
Newfoundland has become better defined.  In addition, the
associated showers and thunderstorms are now well organized.  If
the current trends continue, the low will likely become a
subtropical depression or subtropical storm overnight.  Some
additional development of the low is likely during the next day or
two before it moves northeastward over colder water and merges with
a frontal zone over the northern Atlantic by the end of the week or
this weekend.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.
