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

    The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Subtropical
    Storm Ernesto located several hundred miles east-southeast of Cape
    Race, Newfoundland.

    A large area of poorly-organized showers and thunderstorms located
    about 600 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands is associated
    with a tropical wave. Some development of this system is possible
    over the next couple of days while it moves west-northwestward at
    around 15 mph toward the Windward Islands. By late Saturday,
    unfavorable environmental conditions should limit the chances for
    additional development while the system moves over the eastern
    Caribbean Sea. Regardless of development, this system is likely to
    bring locally heavy rainfall to portions of the Lesser Antilles on
    Friday and Saturday.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
