Special Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 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 and the potential for tropical 
cyclone formation over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico next week.

An area of low pressure located about 350 miles east of Bermuda is 
producing limited shower activity. Environmental conditions are 
expected to become less favorable for development on Sunday as the 
system moves generally northward, and development of this system 
has become less likely. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook 
will be issued by 9 AM EDT Sunday, or earlier if necessary.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

A broad area of disturbed weather is expected to stretch across 
portions of southern Mexico and the southwestern Gulf of Mexico for 
the next several days. An area of low pressure could form in this 
region by the middle of next week, and some gradual development is 
possible thereafter if the system remains over water. Regardless of 
development, heavy rainfall is likely over portions of southern 
Mexico during the next few days. The next Special Tropical Weather 
Outlook will be issued by 9 AM EDT Sunday, or earlier if necessary.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
