Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 PM EDT Tue Aug 11 2020

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

A low pressure system is located over the eastern tropical Atlantic 
more than a thousand miles east of the Lesser Antilles.  Shower and 
thunderstorm activity decreased somewhat this morning, but new 
activity is now forming near the system's center of circulation.  
If these storms persist, then advisories would likely be initiated 
on a tropical depression later today or tonight.  Even if a 
depression does not form by tonight, environmental conditions are 
expected to become more conducive for development while the system 
moves west-northwestward at around 15 mph during the next couple of 
days.  Conditions are expected to become less conducive for 
development by the end of the week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.


Additional information on the eastern tropical Atlantic low can be 
found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather 
Service, under AWIPS header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and
