1. Shower and thunderstorm activity in association with the broad area of low pressure located over the southwestern Caribbean Sea is beginning to show some signs of organization. Environmental conditions are forecast to steadily become more conducive for development, and this system is expected to become a tropical depression within the next few days. The large disturbance should move slowly northwestward to northward across or near the eastern portions of Nicaragua and Honduras, move into the northwestern Caribbean Sea on Thursday or Friday, and emerge over the southern Gulf of Mexico by the weekend. Interests in Nicaragua and Honduras should monitor the progress of this system over the next couple of days. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the disturbance Wednesday afternoon, if necessary. Regardless of development, this system will likely produce heavy rains over portions of Central America during the next few days. * Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

Note: To moderator, There is like 98% chance it will be called Nate. Please update title removing question mark if eventually named Nate. Or delete name Nate from title if 2% chance this is not named Nate.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Wed Oct 4 2017


1. Showers and thunderstorms associated with the broad area of low pressure located over the southwestern Caribbean Sea continue to show signs of organization. Environmental conditions are forecast to steadily become more conducive for development, and this system is expected to become a tropical depression within the next couple of days. The large disturbance should move slowly northwestward across or near the eastern portions of Nicaragua and Honduras, move into the northwestern Caribbean Sea on Thursday, and emerge over the southern Gulf of Mexico by the weekend. Interests in Nicaragua,Honduras, Belize, and the Yucatan Peninsula should monitor the progress of this system over the next few days. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the disturbance this afternoon, if necessary. Regardless of development, this system will likely produce heavy rains over portions of Central America during the next few days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

2. A trough of low pressure located over central Cuba and extending
northward into the Straits of Florida is producing a broad area
of disorganized showers and thunderstorms across the southern
peninsula of Florida, the northwestern Bahamas, and the adjacent
Atlantic waters. Although significant development of this system
is not expected due to strong upper-level winds, brief squalls will
likely produce locally heavy rainfall and strong gusty winds over
portions of the Bahamas and the southern Florida peninsula during
the next couple of days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.

Tropical Weather Outlook NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 800 AM EDT Wed Oct 4 2017
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
1. Showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure located over the southwestern Caribbean Sea have become better organized since yesterday. This system is expected to become a tropical depression later today while it moves northwestward toward the coast of Nicaragua. The low should move slowly northwestward across or near the eastern portions of Nicaragua and Honduras on Thursday, move into the northwestern Caribbean Sea by Friday, and emerge over the southern Gulf of Mexico by Saturday. Interests in Nicaragua, Honduras, the Yucatan peninsula and western Cuba should monitor the progress of this system as watches or warnings could be issued later today. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the disturbance this afternoon. Regardless of development, this system will produce heavy rains over portions of Central America during the next few days, likely causing flash floods and mudslides.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.


.....

Comments this is developing far faster than expected and has time to develop big before impacting areas in US.

8pmEST 4-Oct2017: Winds 35mph, moving NW 7mph, pressure 1005mb. Still Tropical Depression 16 but named storm soon likely. Current threat is the HUGE amounts of rain into portions of Central America:
-Nicaragua: 15-20inches, isolated 30inches
-Costa Rica & Panama: 5-10inches, isolated 20inches
-Honduras: 2-5inches, isolated 8inches.
Life threatening flash flooding and mudslides possible.

Appears the other system between FL and Cuba may head up eastern Gulf of Mexico and bring scattered rains and some winds and rougher surf up in advance of this system.

Official 8pmEST NHC cone map (shows ONLY where the center of storm could be in time) (*Note: the GFS model takes the storm into Louisiana, Euro into the Panhandle of FL):


Water temps (in C), storm could be stronger if keeps over the warmer water between Yucatan and Cuba, slightly cooler waters to the West and East of that. Still plenty of warmth to get to a Hurricane, question is how much stronger could it potentially become and that's going to also be determined by how much land interaction and track it takes over the next few days.


Tropical Storm force winds arrival time 5pmEST map (keep in mind the wide spread into the US is also because of storm location uncertainty that far out in time as well):
