Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Thu Nov 3 2022

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

Active Systems:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on recently downgraded Tropical Storm Lisa, located inland over northeastern Guatemala, and on Hurricane Martin, located over the central North Atlantic.

1. Northwestern Atlantic:
A non-tropical area of low pressure is currently located several hundred miles to the east-northeast of Bermuda. This system is currently associated with a limited area of disorganized showers, and environmental conditions are only marginally favorable for some gradual subtropical or tropical development of this system as it begins to move more westward by this weekend. By early next week, this system is likely to be absorbed by a larger system developing to its southwest.

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

2. Southwestern Atlantic:
Another non-tropical, but complex area of low pressure is expected to develop this weekend over the northeastern Caribbean Sea or the southwestern Atlantic. Some slow subtropical or tropical development of this system is possible afterward while it moves generally northward to northwestward through early next week.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.
