SECURITY LEVEL: MARSEC 1

===========================================================
CURRENT HURRICANE STATUS - 4 - SEASONAL - NO STORMS EXPECTED

FOR THE NORTH ATLANTIC...CARIBBEAN SEA AND THE GULF OF MEXICO...

1. CLOUDINESS AND SHOWERS EXTENDING FROM THE NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA
ACROSS CUBA AND HISPANIOLA INTO THE BAHAMAS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH A
ELONGATED AREA OF SURFACE LOW PRESSURE INTERACTING WITH A LARGE UPPER-
LEVEL TROUGH. THIS SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO MOVE SLOWLY NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD
OR NORTHWARD DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS...
AND SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT APPEARS UNLIKELY DUE TO STRONG UPPER-LEVEL
WINDS. THERE IS A LOW CHANCE...20 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A
TROPICAL OR SUBTROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT
48 HOURS.

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