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

1. Widespread cloudiness and showers extending from the southeastern
Bahamas northward over the southwestern Atlantic for a few hundred
miles are associated with a sharp trough of low pressure. Although
limited development of this system is anticipated tonight and
Thursday, conditions are forecast to become a little more conducive
for tropical cyclone formation over the weekend, and a tropical
depression is likely to form as the system moves slowly toward the
west-northwest across the Florida Straits and southeastern Florida,
and into the eastern Gulf of Mexico. This disturbance will likely
produce periods of locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds across the
Bahamas through Friday, and across Florida during the weekend. An
Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to
investigate the system Thursday afternoon, if necessary.

Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.

Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

2. A broad low pressure system, associated with a tropical wave, is
located about 600 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. This weak
disturbance is accompanied by limited shower activity that has
been gradually diminishing today. This system is forecast to move
westward toward unfavorable upper-level winds, and tropical cyclone
formation is not anticipated.

Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.

Formation chance through 5 days...low...near 0 percent.

3. A tropical wave located between the west coast of Africa and the
Cabo Verde Islands is forecast to move quickly westward during the
next several days. Some development is possible over the weekend or
early next week while the system moves over the tropical Atlantic.

Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.

Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.
