Special Tropical Weather Outlook

NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL

945 AM EDT Fri Oct 25 2019

 

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

 

Special outlook issued to update discussion of systems in the Gulf

of Mexico and southwest of the Azores.

 

1. Updated: Visible satellite imagery and surface observations indicate

that a tropical cyclone is forming in the western Gulf of Mexico,

and advisories will be initiated on this system later this morning.

The system is forecast to merge with a cold front and become post-

tropical tonight over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico. Gale-force

winds are expected behind the cold front over the western Gulf of

Mexico today and Saturday. For more information, see High Seas

Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service. An Air Force

Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the

system later today.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...near 100 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days...high...near 100 percent.

 

2. Updated: Recent satellite derived winds indicate that the small

non-tropical low centered a few hundred miles southwest of the

western Azores is producing tropical-storm-force winds near the

center. The thunderstorm activity is becoming better organized and

if this trend continues a tropical or subtropical cyclone could form

later today. The low is forecast to move toward the east-northeast

for the next day or so and interests in the Azores should monitor

the progress of this system. For more information, see High Seas

Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.

 

High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service can be

found under AWIPS header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and

.SYNOPSIS...<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">A strong cold front will reach the Texas coast this  morning, and push rapidly southward into the SW Gulf later today.  Northerly gale force winds are expected W of the front through  tonight. A low pressure area centered near 24N95W is producing  widespread showers and scattered thunderstorms. Some further  development is possible today as the low moves north ahead of the  front, and it may become a tropical depression before merging  with the cold front overnight. Winds and seas will diminish  rapidly across the western Gulf on Saturday as the front weakens.
