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

The Weather Prediction Center has issued the last advisory on the remnants of Hanna, located inland over northern Mexico.

1. Shower activity associated with a broad area of low pressure located a little more than 1000 miles east of the Windward Islands has become a little less organized since last night. However, environmental conditions are still expected to become more favorable for development in a day or two and a tropical depression or tropical storm will likely form within the next couple of days. The system is forecast to move westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph and could begin to affect portions of the Lesser Antilles on Wednesday or Wednesday night. Interests on those islands should continue to monitor the progress of this system.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.
