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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane

which extends near Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, portions of Cuba, 
and the Windward Passage.  Some slow development of this system is 
possible during the next few days while it moves northeastward near 
western or central Cuba, the Straits of Florida and the central 
Bahamas through the weekend.  Regardless of development, locally 
heavy rainfall is possible over portions of Cuba, South Florida, and 
the Bahamas through early next week.
