NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
900 AM EST Mon Dec 5 2022
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the potential
for subtropical development this week over the central Atlantic.
1. A large area of low pressure located over the central subtropical
Atlantic about 750 miles northeast of the northern Leeward Islands
is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental
conditions appear conducive for this system to acquire some
subtropical characteristics while it drifts northeastward during the
next few days. By Thursday night or Friday, however, the low is
expected to move over cooler waters, ending its chances of becoming
a subtropical cyclone. Additional information on this system,
including gale warnings, can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued
by the National Weather Service. The next Special Tropical Weather
Outlook on this system will be issued by 9 PM EST today or
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.
