Special Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
900 AM EST Mon Dec 5 2022

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

Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the potential 
for subtropical development this week over the central Atlantic.

A large area of low pressure located over the central subtropical 
Atlantic about 750 miles northeast of the northern Leeward Islands 
is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms.  Environmental 
conditions appear conducive for this system to acquire some 
subtropical characteristics while it drifts northeastward during the 
next few days.  By Thursday night or Friday, however, the low is 
expected to move over cooler waters, ending its chances of becoming 
a subtropical cyclone.  Additional information on this system, 
including gale warnings, can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued 
by the National Weather Service.  The next Special Tropical Weather 
Outlook on this system will be issued by 9 PM EST today or 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service
can be found under AWIPS header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01
