Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Tue Sep 25 2018

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on recently
downgraded Subtropical Depression Leslie, located about 1200 miles
west of the Azores.

A broad area of low pressure located about 300 miles south of Cape
Hatteras, North Carolina, continues to produce showers and
thunderstorms on its north side.  Satellite data indicate that the
circulation of the low is elongated and not well organized.
However, this system could still become a tropical depression later
today while it moves northwestward.  By tonight and Wednesday,
additional development appears unlikely, due to strong upper-level
winds, while the system moves northward and north-northeastward near
the southeastern United States coast. Regardless of tropical cyclone
formation, this system will likely enhance rainfall across portions
of northeastern South Carolina and eastern North Carolina later
today and tonight. In addition, dangerous surf conditions and rip
currents are expected along portions of the North Carolina coast
today. For more information, please see products from your local
National Weather Service office.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.

The remnants of Kirk are located about 1100 miles east of the
Windward Islands and are moving quickly westward at around 25 mph.
This system continues to produce a large area of showers and
thunderstorms, along with winds to gale force on its north side.
However, satellite data indicate that the system still lacks a
closed circulation.  This disturbance could redevelop into a
tropical cyclone during the next couple of days before it moves
into an area of highly unfavorable upper-level winds while it
approaches the Caribbean Sea.  Interests in the Windward and
Leeward Islands should monitor the progress of this disturbance as
gusty winds and locally heavy rains are likely even if the system
does not redevelop into a tropical cyclone.  For more information on
this system, see High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent.

Subtropical Depression Leslie is forecast to become post-tropical
tonight after it merges with a cold front over the central Atlantic.
After that time, Leslie could reacquire subtropical or tropical
characteristics by the end of the week as it meanders over the
central Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.
