TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
200 PM EDT SUN AUG 28 2016

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane
Gaston, located about 600 miles east of Bermuda, and on newly
formed Tropical Depression Eight, located about 400 miles southeast
of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

Shower and thunderstorm activity has begun to increase near and to
the east of a weak area of low pressure located just south of the
lower Florida Keys.  The low is expected to move westward into the
southeastern Gulf of Mexico on Monday, where environmental
conditions are expected to become more conducive for development,
and a tropical depression is likely to form within the next few
days.  This system is then expected to move slowly northward and
northeastward over the eastern Gulf of Mexico later this week.
Regardless of development, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are likely
to continue over portions of the northwestern Bahamas, central and
western Cuba, the Florida Keys and portions of southern Florida
through Monday.  Interests elsewhere in Florida and the eastern Gulf
of Mexico should continue to monitor the progress of this
disturbance.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent

A weak area of low pressure located near the upper Texas coast is
producing disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity over the
northwestern Gulf of Mexico and adjacent coastal areas of
southwestern Louisiana and southeastern Texas.  Surface pressures
remain high in the area and the system's proximity to land is
expected to limit significant development while it moves slowly
southwestward during the next couple of days.  For additional
information on the rainfall associated with this system, please see
products from your local National Weather Service office.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent

A tropical wave is expected to move offshore of the west coast of
Africa on Tuesday.  Conditions are expected to be favorable for
development of this system later this week while it moves westward
at 15 to 20 mph over the tropical eastern Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent

    1100 AM AST SUN AUG 28 2016
    
    The eye was fairly distinct a few hours ago, but recently it has
    become slightly cloud-filled and the inner-core convection has
    become less symmetrical.  The current intensity is set at 90 kt,
    in agreement with a Dvorak estimate from TAFB and objective ADT
    values from UW-CIMSS.  Assuming the slight degradation of the inner
    core structure to be temporary, a little more strengthening is
    expected within the next 12 to 24 hours.  Gaston should remain in a
    low to moderate vertical wind shear environment for the next
    couple of days, which would allow the hurricane to more or less
    maintain its intensity through 36-48 hours.  By 72 hours and beyond,
    increasing westerly shear should induce weakening.  The official
    intensity forecast is close to the multi-model consensus IVCN.
    
    Steering currents are weak, and the initial motion is a
    northwestward drift or 320/4 kt.  Gaston's motion is being
    partially blocked by a narrow subtropical ridge, and this scenario
    should continue for the next day or so.  The hurricane is expected
    to gradually work its way through the ridge and, in 24 to 48 hours,
    begin to move northeastward and east-northeastward as it enters the
    mid-latitude westerlies.  The official forecast is close to a
    consensus of the ECMWF and GFS solutions.

    TROPICAL DEPRESSION EIGHT DISCUSSION NUMBER   1
    NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       AL082016
    1100 AM EDT SUN AUG 28 2016
    
    The area of low pressure located west of Bermuda has been producing
    intermittent organized deep convection for the last 24 hours or so,
    and the convection has increased markedly since 06Z.  Given this,
    and the well-defined center shown by an overnight ASCAT pass,
    advisories are now being initiated on this system as a tropical
    cyclone.  The initial intensity is estimated to be 30 kt based on
    the latest Dvorak estimates of T2.0/30 kt from TAFB and SAB.  An Air
    Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate
    the depression this afternoon.
    
    The environment is only expected to be marginally conducive for
    intensification, with moderate southeasterly to easterly shear
    expected to become southwesterly and increase further in 36 to 48
    hours.  As a result, only modest strengthening is shown in the
    official forecast, with the depression expected to become a tropical
    storm in the next day or two.  After that time, the global models
    show the cyclone opening up along a frontal zone well offshore of
    the northeastern United States.  However, there is some disagreement
    in when this will occur, with the GFS showing the cyclone
    dissipating in about 3 days, and the ECMWF hanging onto it until
    around day 5.  As a compromise, the NHC forecast shows dissipation
    after day 4, but this timing is quite uncertain.
    
    The depression is currently situated south of a mid-level ridge that
    extends from the Mid-Atlantic states into the western Atlantic, and
    the initial motion estimate is 280/08.  The ridge is forecast to
    break down and shift eastward during the next 2-3 days, which should
    result in the cyclone gradually turning poleward and then recurving
    during the next 72 hours.  The NHC track forecast is close to a
    blend of the GFS and ECMWF models through dissipation.  This
    forecast keeps the center of the cyclone east of the Outer Banks of
    North Carolina, but a tropical storm watch may be needed for that
    area later today.
    
    Based on an evaluation of satellite imagery and data during the past
    few days, it appears that the remnants of Tropical Storm Fiona are
    not directly responsible for the genesis of this depression.  The
    Fiona remnants were absorbed into a separate area of pre-existing
    vorticity, with the current depression developing out of the
    combined system.  As a result, this is considered to be a new
    tropical cyclone, not a regeneration of a previous tropical
    cyclone.

NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
1100 AM PDT SUN AUG 28 2016

For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane
Lester, located about 950 miles west-southwest of the southern
tip of the Baja California peninsula.

A broad area of cloudiness and disorganized showers is located
several hundred miles south-southwest of the southern tip of the
Baja California peninsula.  Development, if any, of this system is
expected to be slow to occur as it moves westward or west-
northwestward during the next few days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent

An area of low pressure is expected to form later this week a few
hundred miles south or southeast of Acapulco, Mexico.  Environmental
conditions appear conducive for slow development of this system as
it moves generally west-northwestward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent

    HURRICANE LESTER DISCUSSION NUMBER  16
    NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP132016
    800 AM PDT SUN AUG 28 2016
    
    The cloud pattern has continued to deteriorate and the eye is no
    longer observed on conventional imagery, but it is hidden under the
    cirrus canopy as revealed by a 1206 UTC SSMIS pass. The convection
    continues to be concentrated near the center, and the outflow is
    fair.  Dvorak objective numbers from CIMMS and estimates
    from TAFB and SAB support a lower intensity of 75 kt.
    
    There are no obvious reasons why Lester should continue to weaken.
    The environment, at least for the next few days, does not appear to
    be detrimental for Lester to intensify, other than perhaps a small
    decrease in the SSTs.  Given these factors, the NHC forecast calls
    for no change in intensity during the next 4 days with some
    weakening thereafter when Lester eventually encounters drier air.
    This forecast is consistent with the intensity consensus model.
    
    Lester is moving toward the west or 270 degrees at 11 kt. The track
    forecast is a little more straightforward since the hurricane is
    embedded within a deep layer of easterly flow associated with a
    persistent subtropical ridge across the Pacific. By the end of
    the forecast period, Lester will likely turn west-northwest toward
    a weakness inf the ridge.  Track guidance is tightly packed, and the
    NHC forecast is very close to the multi-model consensus, and does
    not deviate much from the previous NHC prediction
