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

Shower and thunderstorm activity has become more concentrated with
the area of low pressure located about 450 miles southeast of
Charleston, South Carolina.  An Air Force Reserve Hurricane
Hunter aircraft is currently investigating the low to determine if
it has acquired a well-defined surface circulation. Environmental
conditions are favorable for this system to become a tropical
cyclone later today or on Saturday while it moves west-northwestward
toward the southeastern United States coast.  Interests from Georgia
through North Carolina should monitor the progress of this low.

If advisories are not initiated this afternoon, the next Special
Tropical Weather Outlook on this disturbance will be issued by
8 PM EDT this evening. For additional information on this system,
please see High Seas Forecasts as well as products issued by your
