NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
201 PM EDT SUN SEP 25 2016

MARINE WEATHER DISCUSSION FOR THE GULF OF MEXICO...CARIBBEAN
SEA AND TROPICAL N ATLANTIC FROM 07N TO 19N BETWEEN 55W AND
64W...AND THE SW N ATLANTIC INCLUDING THE BAHAMAS.

...GULF OF MEXICO...

MODEL PREFERENCE: GLOBAL MODEL CONSENSUS. HIGH CONFIDENCE.

WEAK HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER THE N GULF WILL PERSIST THROUGH
MON SUPPORTING LIGHT TO GENTLE WINDS IN THE EASTERN GULF AND
MODERATE TO LOCALLY FRESH WINDS OVER THE WESTERN GULF...WITH
SEAS 3 FT OR LESS ACROSS THE ENITIRE BASIN. A WEAK COLD FRONT
WILL REACH THE NORTHERN GULF COAST MON NIGHT...BECOME STATIONARY
TUE...THEN DISSIPATE THROUGH WED AS A HIGH CENTERED OVER THE
CENTRAL U.S. BUILDS ACROSS THE NORTHERN GULF WITH MODERATE NE
WINDS DEVELOPING NW OF A LINE FROM BIG BEND OF FLORIDA TO CORPUS
CHRISTI TEXAS. A THERMAL TROUGH MOVING WEST OFF THE COAST OF THE
YUCATAN EACH NIGHT WILL SUPPORT SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS IN THE EASTERN BAY OF CAMPECHE.

...CARIBBEAN SEA AND TROPICAL N ATLANTIC FROM 07N TO 19N BETWEEN
55W AND 64W...

MODEL PREFERENCE: GLOBAL MODEL CONSENSUS. HIGH CONFIDENCE
THROUGH WED...THEN LOW WED NIGHT THROUGH FRI.

HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING OVER THE W ATLC WILL SUPPORT MODERATE TO
FRESH TRADES IN THE S CENTRAL CARIBBEAN AND GENTLE TO MODERATE
TRADES ELSEWHERE THROUGH MON NIGHT. A WEAK TROPICAL WAVE MOVING
ACROSS THE LESSER ANTILLES IS EXPECTED TO BECOME DIFFUSE IN THE
CENTRAL CARIBBEAN BY WED. A STRONGER TROPICAL WAVE AND LOW PRES
NEAR 40W WILL MOVE INTO TROPICAL N ATLC WATERS TUE THEN ACROSS
THE WINDWARDS INTO THE E CARIBBEAN WED. A TROPICAL CYCLONE IS
LIKELY TO DEVELOP FROM THIS SYSTEM BY THE TIME IT REACHES THE
LESSER ANTILLES. MODEL GUIDANCE INDICATES HIGHEST WINDS AND SEAS
WILL BE NORTH OF THE LOW...AND EAST OF THE WAVE AXIS. EXPECT 20
TO 30 KT WINDS IN THE TROPICAL N ATLC ZONES WED...SPREADING INTO
THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN THU...AND THE EAST-CENTRAL CARIBBEAN FRI.
GLOBAL MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGH LATE WED BUT DIVERGE
CONSIDERABLY AFTERWARDS. CONFIDENCE IS LOW REGARDING THE FUTURE
TRACK AND INTENSITY OF THE LOW AFTER IT PASSES 70W BY LATE THU.

...SW N ATLANTIC INCLUDING THE BAHAMAS...

MODEL PREFERENCE: GLOBAL MODEL CONSENSUS. HIGH CONFIDENCE.

A COLD FRONT TRAILING AN INTENSE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IN THE
CENTRAL ATLANTIC WILL MOVE ACROSS NE WATERS MON AND MON NIGHT.
LIGHT TO GENTLE WINDS AND BENIGN MARINE CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE
ELSEWHERE THROUGH TUE. FRESH TO STRONG WINDS AND BUILDING SEAS
NORTH OF A STRONG TROPICAL WAVE MOVING INTO THE LESSER ANTILLES
WILL AFFECT SE WATERS WED AND THU THEN SPREAD WESTWARD INTO THE
WATERS NORTH OF PUERTO RICO AND HISPANIOLA FRI AS THE WAVE MOVES
ACROSS THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN.
