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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane
Ophelia, located over the eastern Atlantic Ocean a couple of hundred

A broad area of low pressure centered just east of the northern
Leeward Islands is accompanied by numerous showers and squalls
mainly to the east of the center. This activity is expected to
spread over the Leeward Islands and the Virgin Islands today and
Sunday. Upper-level winds are expected to remain unfavorable for
development during the next couple of days, but the environment
could turn a little more favorable for some development early next
week when the system begins to move northward and then recurves over
the west-central Atlantic Ocean.
