Tropical Weather Outlook
Statement as of 2:00 am EDT on August 30, 2015

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on newly formed
Tropical Depression Six, located a few hundred miles east-southeast
of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands in the far eastern Atlantic
Ocean.

A trough of low pressure associated with the remnants of Erika is
moving quickly west-northwestward across the Florida Straits this
morning. Although there are no signs of redevelopment at this time,
upper-level winds could become marginally favorable for tropical
cyclone formation over the next day or so.  Regardless of this
system's prospects for regeneration, locally heavy rains and gusty
winds are expected to spread across portions of South Florida and
the Florida Keys today. This activity should spread northwestward
and then northward across the eastern Gulf of Mexico late today
and on Monday. Additional information on this system can be found in
marine forecasts and local forecast products issued by the National
Weather Service and the meteorological service of Cuba.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent
* formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent
