NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 200 AM EDT Sat Sep 30 2017 (see video below)

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Maria, located several hundred miles south of Cape Race, Newfoundland, and on Tropical Storm Lee, located almost 1000 miles west-northwest of the Azores.

1. The interaction of a weak low pressure area over central Florida and an upper-level low over the Gulf of Mexico is producing disorganized cloudiness and showers that extend from the northwestern Caribbean Sea northward across much of the Florida peninsula and the adjacent waters. Due to the low’s interaction
with land and an expected increase of upper-level winds over the weekend, the likelihood of this system’s development appears to be decreasing. Locally heavy rainfall is still anticipated over portions of western Cuba, the Florida Keys, and the Florida peninsula during the next several days while the system moves slowly northward and then westward near northern Florida and the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. Formation chance through 48 hours, low, 30 percent.  Formation chance through 5 days, low, 30 percent.

2. A tropical wave interacting with an upper-level low is producing widespread cloudiness and showers extending from the eastern Caribbean Sea northeastward across the Lesser Antilles to the nearby Atlantic waters. Upper-level winds are not expected to be conducive for development while this system moves west-northwestward to westward at 10 to 15 mph during the next few days. However, locally heavy rainfall is expected over portions of the northern Leeward Islands and the Greater Antilles during the next several days, with a Flash Flood Watch in effect for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands through late Sunday night. Formation chance through 48 hours, low, near 0 percent. Formation chance through 5 days, lo, .10 percent.

If either of storm system is name, it will named Tropical Storm Nate. If both storm systems are name the second storm will be Tropical Storm Ophelia

Previous Warning 800 AM EDT Thu Sep 29 201

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Maria, located over the western Atlantic Ocean a few hundred miles south of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and on Hurricane Lee, located over the north Atlantic Ocean several hundred miles south-southeast of Newfoundland.

1. A broad trough of low pressure interacting with an upper-level low is producing a large but disorganized area of cloudiness and showers. This activity extends from the northwestern Caribbean Sea northward across western Cuba to the southern Florida peninsula. This trough has moved slowly westward since yesterday, and a weak low is now likely to form from this system near the west coast of Florida during the weekend. Environmental conditions appear to be conducive for some development of the low before the upper-level winds become less favorable early next week. Regardless of development, this system is likely to produce locally heavy rainfall over portions of central and western Cuba, the Florida Keys, the Florida peninsula during the next several days. Formation chance through 48 hours, medium, 40 percent. Formation chance through 5 days, medium, 40 percent.

2. A tropical wave is producing cloudiness and showers over the northeastern Caribbean Sea and the adjacent Atlantic waters. Although there are no signs of organization and surface pressures are not falling at this time, conditions could become a little more favorable for some development next week while the system moves toward the west-northwest. This system is expected to bring locally heavy rains over the northern Leeward Islands, including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Formation chance through 48 hours, low, near 0 percent. Formation chance through 5 days, low, 20 percent.

Previous Warning 200 PM EDT Thu Sep 28 2017

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

1. A large area of cloudiness and showers extending from the Cayman Islands northward across Cuba to the Florida Straits is associated with a broad surface trough interacting with an upper-level low. A weak area of low pressure is likely to form from this weather system while it moves northward across the Florida Straits to near the east coast of the Florida peninsula during the next few days, and environmental conditions appear conducive for development before upper-level winds become less favorable early next week. Regardless of development, this system is likely to produce locally heavy
rainfall over portions of central and western Cuba, the Florida Keys, the Florida peninsula, and the northwestern Bahamas during the next several days. Formation chance through 48 hours, low, 30 percent. Formation chance through 5 days, medium, 50 percent.
