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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Depression Thirteen, located several hundred miles east of the 
northern Leeward Islands, and on Tropical Depression Fourteen, 
located just east-southeast of the Honduras/Nicaragua border.

1. A tropical wave located near the west coast of Africa is producing 
a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.  This wave 
is expected to move offshore over the far eastern tropical Atlantic 
on Friday, and it could become a tropical depression within the 
next few days while it moves west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph 
across the eastern tropical Atlantic.  Environmental conditions are 
expected to become less favorable for development early next week.  
Regardless of development, this system will likely bring gusty 
winds and heavy rains across portions of the Cabo Verde Islands 
this weekend.
