TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
200 AM EDT SUN SEP 18 2016

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Depression Julia, located a few hundred miles southeast of the
coast of South Carolina, and on Tropical Storm Karl, located nearly
midway between Africa and the Leeward Islands.

A broad area of low pressure located a few hundred miles southeast
of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing a large, but disorganized
area of cloudiness and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions are
expected to be conducive for development, and a tropical depression
is likely to form by mid-week while the low moves west-northwestward
to northwestward across the eastern tropical Atlantic. Regardless of
development, locally heavy rains and gusty winds are possible in the
Cabo Verde Islands during the next couple of days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent
