The combination of a broad trough of low pressure over Florida and an upper-level low over the Gulf of Mexico is producing disorganized cloudiness and showers that extend from the northwestern Caribbean Sea northward across much of the Florida peninsula and the adjacent
waters. Environmental conditions have become less conducive for development and the chance of tropical cyclone formation has decreased.

* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (20%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (20%)

A tropical wave interacting with an upper-level low is producing a large but disorganized area of cloudiness and showers extending from the eastern Caribbean Sea northeastward across the Lesser Antilles to the nearby Atlantic waters. Environmental conditions have become unfavorable for development and tropical cyclone
formation is not anticipated.

* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (0%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (0%)
