Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Sun Sep 25 2022

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

Active Systems:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Storm Ian, located over the western Caribbean Sea, on Tropical 
Storm Gaston, located near the western Azores, and on Tropical 
Depression Hermine, located over the far eastern Atlantic.

1. Central Tropical Atlantic:
An area of low pressure located several hundred miles west of the 
Cabo Verde Islands is producing minimal shower activity. Any 
development of this system should be slow to occur while it moves 
very little through the early portion of next week. Environmental 
conditions could become marginally more conducive for development by 
the middle portion of next week, when the system is forecast to 
begin moving slowly northward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
