NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
1037 PM EDT FRI AUG 22 2014

MARINE WEATHER HF VOICE BROADCAST FOR THE TROPICAL N ATLANTIC
FROM 07N TO 22N BETWEEN 55W AND 64W...THE SW N ATLANTIC S OF
31N W OF 65W INCLUDING BAHAMAS...AND THE CARIBBEAN SEA.

SEAS GIVEN AS SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT...WHICH IS THE AVERAGE
HEIGHT OF THE HIGHEST 1/3 OF THE WAVES. INDIVIDUAL WAVES MAY BE
MORE THAN TWICE THE SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT.

SYNOPSIS FOR CARIBBEAN SEA AND TROPICAL N ATLC FROM 07N TO 19N
BETWEEN 55W AND 64W

.SYNOPSIS...A TROPICAL LOW PRESSURE IS CENTERED NEAR 20N69W
MOVING WEST AT AROUND 20 KT. THIS SYSTEM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO
DEVELOP INTO A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT DAY OR TWO OVER
THE SW N ATLC WATERS AS THE LOW PASSES JUST NORTH OF HISPANIOLA
TONIGHT INTO SAT...AND NEAR THE TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS LATE
SAT INTO SUN. THIS LOW IS EXPECTED TO TAKE A MORE NORTHERLY TURN
ON SUN AND AWAY FROM THE CARIBBEAN REGION.
