Special Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
250 PM EDT Sat May 30 2020

For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the area of low pressure over the central Atlantic.

Shower activity has decreased today in association with a broad area of low pressure located about 400 miles east-southeast of Bermuda. Some development of this system is still possible through tonight, and it could become a short-lived subtropical depression while it moves northwestward over the central Atlantic. After that time, further development is not anticipated due to unfavorable environmental conditions. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook will be issued by 9 PM EDT today, or earlier if necessary. Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…40 percent. Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent.

The rest of the basin is quiet for now and just a reminder, hurricane season officially starts Monday June 1st, but technically the season is well-underway with two named system already (Arthur and Bertha). Next name on the list is Cristobal.
