Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Wed Sep 20 2017

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Storm Jose, located a couple of hundred miles south of Nantucket,
Massachusetts, and on extremely dangerous Hurricane Maria, located
over Puerto Rico.

Showers and thunderstorms have not become any better organized
during the past several hours in association with the remnants of
Lee, located about 1000 miles east of the Leeward Islands.  Although
environmental conditions are marginal for development, only a small
increase in the overall organization of the system would result in
the regeneration of Lee.  This low is expected to move northward
over the central Atlantic Ocean during the next few days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

Additional information on the remnants of Lee can be found in High
Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service, under AWIPS
header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and available on the Web
