FOR THE NORTH ATLANTIC...CARIBBEAN SEA AND THE GULF OF MEXICO...

THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER HAS ISSUED THE LAST ADVISORY ON FORMER TROPICAL DEPRESSION DON...LOCATED INLAND OVER SOUTHERN TEXAS.

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED WITH A LARGE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM LOCATED ABOUT 900 MILES EAST OF THE WINDWARD ISLANDS ARE GRADUALLY BECOMING BETTER ORGANIZED. SURFACE PRESSURES REMAIN LOW IN THE AREA...AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS APPEAR FAVORABLE FOR A TROPICAL DEPRESSION TO FORM OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. THIS SYSTEM HAS A HIGH CHANCE...70 PERCENT...OF BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS IT MOVES WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT
15 TO 20 MPH.

A TROPICAL WAVE OVER THE NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA IS PRODUCING DISORGANIZED SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY. THIS SYSTEM WILL LIKELY BRING LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL TO PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AMERICA THROUGH THE WEEKEND AS IT MOVES WESTWARD AT 10 TO 15 MPH. HOWEVER...NO SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT IS EXPECTED DUE TO ITS INTERACTION WITH LAND. THIS SYSTEM HAS A LOW CHANCE...NEAR 0 PERCENT...OF BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS.

ELSEWHERE...TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION IS NOT EXPECTED DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS.
