tropical depression to form over the next day or so while the low 
moves north-northwestward at 5 to 10 kt. This system has a high 
chance of tropical cyclone formation during the next 48 hours.

14N. This activity is enhanced by an upper-level low over the SW 
Caribbean. Scatterometer data depicts Gentle to moderate winds 
prevail across the basin.

Moderate trade winds will prevail in the central and eastern
Caribbean through late Tue. Surface ridging will establish over
the SW Atlantic waters by mid-week, resulting in moderate to
fresh trades in the central and eastern Caribbean. Moderate
southeast winds are expected to continue in the NW basin 
through Tue. Large swell associated with Twenty is forecast to 
affect the tropical Atlantic waters E of the Leeward Islands by 
the middle of the week.

Leeward Islands, the Greater Antilles, the Bahamas, Bermuda, and 
the east coast of the United States. These swells could cause 
life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

Elsewhere, scattered gusty showers are currently noted
within 120 nm of the east coast of Florida. This activity is 
associated with the outermost rains of Tropical Storm Sally, 
which is located over the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

Mon evening, 14.4N 45.9W Tue morning, strengthen to
a hurricane near 15.0N 47.3W Tue evening, 16.0N 48.7W Wed 
morning, and 17.2N 50.0W Wed evening. Twenty will change
