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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane 
Epsilon, located over the west-central Atlantic a couple of hundred 
miles northeast of Bermuda.

Satellite images and radar data indicate that the broad area of low 
pressure located just west of Grand Cayman Island is gradually 
becoming better defined.  Environmental conditions appear conducive 
for further development, and a tropical depression will likely form 
during the next day or two while the low drifts toward the 
northwest. The system could move near western Cuba by Sunday and 
move slowly across the southeastern Gulf of Mexico by early next 
week. Interests in western Cuba, the Florida Keys, and southern 
Florida should monitor the progress of this disturbance. Regardless 
of development, locally heavy rainfall will be possible over 
portions of the Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Cuba, southern Florida, 
the Florida Keys, and the northwestern Bahamas through the weekend.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.
