Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Mon Sep 7 2020
For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on newly formed Tropical Depression Seventeen, located over the central tropical Atlantic.
1. Showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure located between the west coast of Africa and the Cabo Verde Islands are showing signs of organization.  Environmental conditions are conducive for additional development, and a tropical depression is likely to form today while the system moves generally westward toward the Cabo Verde Islands.  Interests in those islands should monitor the progress of this system as gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall are likely to begin spreading over the area later today. A Tropical Storm Watch or Warning could be required for the Cabo Verde Islands later this morning.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…high…90 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days…high…90 percent.
2. A trough of low pressure located just south-southwest of Bermuda is producing disorganized cloudiness and showers.  Some slow development of this system is possible this week while it moves west-northwestward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.
3. A new tropical wave is forecast to emerge off the west coast of  Africa by the middle to latter part of this week. Some gradual development will be possible thereafter while the system moves generally westward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent. 
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.
