SYNOPSIS for the SW N Atlantic including the Bahamas  1047 PM EST Thu Jan 26 2023  

 A cold front extending southwestward from west of  Bermuda across 31N71W to northwestern Cuba, then from 31N68W to  central Cuba by Fri morning, then stall and the southern part of  the front will begin to lift northward on Sat. By Sun morning, a  weakening frontal boundary will extent from 31N55W to the NW  Bahamas. A tight pressure gradient across the area will support  fresh to strong NE to E winds and building seas across the Great  Bahama Bank, the Straits of Florida and the Windward passage late  Fri night through Sun night. Southerly flow will increase E of  NE Florida by Sun night ahead of the next cold front forecast to  enter the western Atlantic on Mon.

TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK from NOAA - Updated real time ****    Hurricane models key Codes   TOP

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
1005 AM EST Mon Jan 16 2023

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

Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the potential for 
subtropical development over the northwest Atlantic.

Northwestern Atlantic:
A non-tropical low pressure system centered over the northwestern 
Atlantic Ocean about 300 miles north of Bermuda is producing 
storm-force winds.  Although the cyclone is producing some 
thunderstorm activity near the center, it is embedded in a cold air 
mass with nearby frontal boundaries.  The low is expected to move 
northeastward today and northward tonight, bringing the system over 
much colder waters and across Atlantic Canada by early Tuesday.  
Therefore, it is unlikely that the low will transition to a 
subtropical or tropical cyclone.  Nevertheless, the system is 
expected to remain a strong non-tropical low during the next day or 
so, and additional information, including storm-force wind warnings, 
can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather 

No additional Special Tropical Weather Outlooks are scheduled for 
this system.  Regularly scheduled Tropical Weather Outlooks will 
resume on May 15, 2023, while Special Tropical Weather Outlooks will 
be issued as necessary during the off-season. 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...near 0 percent.

High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service can be 
found under AWIPS header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and
