TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
800 AM EDT SAT AUG 20 2016

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Storm Fiona, located over the central tropical Atlantic.

A broad area of low pressure, associated with a tropical wave, is
located about 750 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.
This system continues to produce disorganized showers and
thunderstorms, and any development should be slow to occur due to
its large size and proximity to dry air.  Environmental conditions
are forecast to be more conducive for development beyond a couple
of days, and a tropical depression could form by the middle of next
week while the system moves westward at 15 to 20 mph across the
tropical Atlantic Ocean and into the eastern Caribbean Sea.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent

A tropical wave located inland over western Africa is producing a
large area of cloudiness and thunderstorms.  This wave is expected
to move offshore tonight and environmental conditions appear
conducive for gradual development while it moves generally
west-northwestward over the eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean during
the next several days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent
