TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK




Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Thu Oct 10 2019

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

1. A non-tropical low-pressure system located about 750 miles east of Bermuda is producing limited shower and thunderstorm activity. Upper-level winds are becoming unfavorable, and development of this system is not likely.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.

2. Cloudiness and showers located off the northeast coast of the United States are associated with a non-tropical area of low pressure that is producing gale-force winds. This system is forecast to strengthen as a non-tropical low off the east coast of the United States during the next day or so. Environmental conditions are expected to be unfavorable for significant subtropical or tropical cyclone development through the end of the week while it meanders offshore of the United States. Regardless of development, this system is expected to bring strong winds, coastal flooding, and rough surf to portions of the mid-Atlantic and northeastern United States coasts through late week. Additional information on this system can also be found in local products and High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

3. An area of low pressure located several hundred miles east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina is producing a few thunderstorms. Upper-level winds are not conducive for development, and this system is forecast to merge with the low off the east coast of the United States by Thursday morning.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.
