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.
