Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Fri Aug 21 2020

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Depression Thirteen, located a couple of hundred miles east of the 
northern Leeward Islands, and on Tropical Depression Fourteen, 
located just offshore the northeastern coast of Honduras.

1. A tropical wave located just off of the west coast of Africa is 
producing a large area of disorganized showers and a few 
thunderstorms.  This wave is expected to move farther offshore 
over the far eastern tropical Atlantic today.  Conditions are 
expected to be conducive for some development over the next few 
days, and the system could become a tropical depression before 
environmental conditions become less favorable for development 
early next week.  This system is forecast to move west-northwestward 
at 15 to 20 mph across the eastern tropical Atlantic, and 
regardless of development it will likely bring gusty winds across 
portions of the Cabo Verde Islands this weekend, as well as heavy 
rains that could cause flooding.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

Public Advisories on Tropical Depression Fourteen are issued under 
WMO header WTNT34 KNHC and under AWIPS header MIATCPAT4.
Forecast/Advisories on Tropical Depression Fourteen are issued 
under WMO header WTNT24 KNHC and under AWIPS header MIATCMAT4.
