The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Eta, located over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico and on newly formed Subtropical Storm Theta, located over the eastern Atlantic.

A tropical wave located over the eastern Caribbean Sea is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. This wave is expected to move westward into more conducive environmental conditions, and a tropical depression could form late this week or this weekend when the wave reaches the central or western Caribbean Sea.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent.

The above area of concern is with a tropical wave in the central Caribbean. Shear is forecast to be rather low over the next several days, and an area of low pressure may take shape early in the week. Should this take place, the combination of warm seas and low wind shear would support tropical development. This bears watching as there is a low to moderate chance of development over the next several days, and this may become a threat to Central America, Jamaica and/or Cuba.
