1. NORTH INDIAN OCEAN AREA (MALAY PENINSULA WEST TO COAST OF AFRICA):
   A. TROPICAL CYCLONE SUMMARY: NONE.
   B. TROPICAL DISTURBANCE SUMMARY:
      (1) THE AREA OF CONVECTION (INVEST 92A) PREVIOUSLY LOCATED 
NEAR 7.9N 58.7E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 8.3N 58.2E, APPROXIMATELY 740 
NM SOUTH OF MASIRAH ISLAND, OMAN. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE 
IMAGERY DEPICTS A BROAD LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION WITH PERSISTENT 
CONVECTION LOCATED TO THE NORTH AND BANDS OF FLARING CONVECTION FROM 
THE SOUTH BEGINNING TO WRAP IN. A 211146Z SSMIS 91GHZ MICROWAVE 
IMAGE DEPICTS AN ELONGATED CIRCULATION WITH A CURVED BAND OF DEEP 
CONVECTION LOCATED TO THE NORTHWEST AND LOW LEVEL FORMATIVE BANDING 
DEVELOPING. A 210552Z ASCAT PASS SHOWS AN ELONGATED CIRCULATION WITH 
PRIMARILY 10-20 KNOT WINDS NEAR THE CENTER AND 20-25 KNOT WINDS TO 
THE NORTH AND SOUTH, BEGINNING TO WRAP IN. THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY 
LOCATED IN AN AREA OF LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (15-20 
KNOTS). ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY DEPICTS ROBUST POLEWARD AND 
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE VERY WARM (31+ 
CELSIUS), WHICH IS FAVORABLE FOR INTENSIFICATION. GLOBAL MODELS ARE 
MOSTLY IN AGREEMENT THAT THE SYSTEM WILL TRACK TO THE NORTH AND 
BEGIN TO CONSOLIDATE RAPIDLY OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS, HOWEVER, THE 
EXACT TRACK VARIES BETWEEN MODELS INDICATING A WIDE SPREAD FROM 
EASTERN YEMEN TO CENTRAL OMAN. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE 
ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED 
TO BE NEAR 1004 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A 
SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS UPGRADED TO 
HIGH. SEE REF A (WTIO21 PGTW 211400) FOR FURTHER DETAILS.
      (2) NO OTHER SUSPECT AREAS.
2. SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN AREA (135E WEST TO COAST OF AFRICA):
   A. TROPICAL CYCLONE SUMMARY: NONE.
   B. TROPICAL DISTURBANCE SUMMARY: NONE.
3. JUSTIFICATION FOR REISSUE: UPGRADED AREA IN PARA 1.B.(1) TO 
HIGH.//

Special Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
830 AM EDT Mon May 21 2018

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

Widespread cloudiness and showers extending from the northwestern
Caribbean Sea across Cuba and the Florida peninsula are associated
with the interaction of a large upper-level low with a weak surface
trough.  While environmental conditions are expected to be
unfavorable for development during the next couple of days, some
gradual development is possible later this week while the system
moves into the central or eastern Gulf of Mexico. Regardless of
development, locally heavy rainfall is possible across western Cuba
and Florida over the next several days.  For more information on
the heavy rain threat, please see products issued by your local
weather office. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook on this
system will be issued by 800 PM EDT tonight.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
