===========================================================

SECURITY LEVEL: MARSEC 1

===========================================================


HURRICANE STATUS - LEVEL 4 - NO STORMS EXPECTED
FOR THE NORTH ATLANTIC...CARIBBEAN SEA AND THE GULF OF MEXICO...

1. A BROAD LOW PRESSURE AREA CENTERED A FEW HUNDRED MILES EAST OF
NICARAGUA CONTINUES TO PRODUCE A LARGE REGION OF DISORGANIZED CLOUDINESS
AND SHOWERS OVER THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA. ANY
DEVELOPMENT OF THIS LOW IS LIKELY TO BE SLOW TO OCCUR...AND THERE IS A
LOW CHANCE...10 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE
DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS. HOWEVER...
UPPER-LEVEL WINDS COULD BECOME MORE CONDUCIVE FOR DEVELOPMENT AFTER THAT
TIME. HEAVY RAINS COULD CAUSE FLASH FLOODING AND MUD SLIDES OVER
PORTIONS OF HAITI...THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC AND JAMAICA OVER THE NEXT DAY
OR TWO AS THE LOW REMAINS NEARLY STATIONARY.

2. A SMALL AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IS PRODUCING LIMITED SHOWER ACTIVITY A
COUPLE HUNDRED MILES NORTHWEST OF THE YUCATAN PENINSULA. UPPER- LEVEL
WINDS ARE BECOMING HOSTILE FOR DEVELOPMENT...AND THERE IS A LOW
CHANCE...NEAR 0 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE
DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS IT MOVES WESTWARD AT ABOUT 15 MPH.

ELSEWHERE...TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION IS NOT EXPECTED DURING THE NEXT 48
HOURS.
