Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Fri Oct 23 2020

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane 
Epsilon, located over the west-central Atlantic about 200 miles east 
of Bermuda. 

1. A broad trough of low pressure, located over the western Caribbean 
Sea, is producing a large area of showers and thunderstorms mainly 
east of the trough. Surface observations, satellite-derived surface 
wind data, and radar data indicate that a low pressure system has 
developed along the trough axis just south of Grand Cayman Island. 
Some gradual development of the low is possible during the next few 
days while it moves northwestward to northward across western or 
central Cuba on Saturday, then turning northward to northeastward 
across the southeastern Gulf of Mexico, Straits of Florida, and the 
central Bahamas on Sunday. Regardless of development, locally heavy 
rainfall will be possible over portions of the Cayman Islands, Cuba, 
South Florida, and the Bahamas through early next week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent
