NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 PM EDT THUR May 14 2020
Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the potential for tropical or subtropical development near the northwest Bahamas.
1.) A trough of low pressure, being referred to as Invest 90L, located over the Straits of Florida continues to produce disorganized shower activity and gusty winds across the Florida Keys, portions of extreme south Florida, and the northwestern Bahamas.
Gradual development of this system is expected, and it will likely become a tropical or subtropical storm by late Friday or Saturday when it is located near the northwestern Bahamas. Later in the weekend and early next week, the system is expected to move generally northeastward over the western Atlantic.
Regardless of development, the disturbance will continue to bring heavy rainfall to portions of the Florida Keys, southeast Florida and the Bahamas through Saturday. Tropical-storm-force wind gusts are also possible across portions of the Florida Keys, southeast Florida, and the Bahamas during the next day or two. In addition, hazardous marine conditions are expected along the Florida east coast and in the Bahamas where Gale Warnings are in effect.
An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system tomorrow, if necessary.
The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook on this system will be issued by 9 AM EDT Friday, or earlier, if necessary.
