    Tropical Weather Outlook
    NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
    800 AM EDT Tue May 26 2020

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

    Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the broad trough
    of low pressure extending across central Florida and the adjacent
    Atlantic waters.

    Showers and thunderstorms located over extreme northeastern
    Florida, adjacent Atlantic waters, and the northwestern Bahamas are
    associated with an elongated surface trough interacting with an
    upper-level disturbance. Although a weak surface low has formed
    within the trough near Orlando, Florida, little if any further
    development of this system is expected due to land interaction,
    strong upper-level winds, and an abundance of dry air in the
    mid-levels of the atmosphere. The broad disturbance is forecast to
    move northward today and Wednesday, remaining inland or near the
    coasts of northeastern Florida and Georgia.

    Regardless of development, heavy rainfall could cause flash
    flooding over portions of coastal sections of northeastern Florida
    and Georgia today, and over portions of the Carolinas on Tuesday
    and Wednesday. Gusty winds could also produce rough marine
    conditions and life-threatening surf and rip currents along the
    coasts of northeastern Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas through
    Wednesday.

    For additional information, see products from your local National
    Weather Service office. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook
    on this system will be issued by 9 PM EDT today, or earlier if
    necessary.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
