Expected to become extratropical by the weekend or into early next week. Not a threat to any landmasses, but rip currents/high waves/surf are expected for Bermuda and along the East Coast. A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Bermuda. (#2) A tropical wave located about 600 miles East of the Lesser Antilles continues to produce disorganized cloudiness and showers. This system is now expected to move generally Westward across the Caribbean Sea with little development during the next few days. However, environmental conditions could become favorable for some development early next week in the Western Caribbean Sea or Southern Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is giving this system a Low chance, 0%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a Low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days.

(#4) Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a weak low pressure area located over the Northwestern Gulf of Mexico has increased during the past several hours. Some additional development is possible before the system moves inland over Southern Texas and Northern Mexico on Thursday. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is giving this system a Low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next couple of days, and a Low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days.
