SPECIAL TROPICAL DISTURBANCE STATEMENT
1030 AM EDT FRI MAY 24 2002
SATELLITE IMAGES AND SURFACE OBSERVATIONS INDICATE THAT THE BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IN THE NORTHWEST CARIBBEAN SEA...BETWEEN HONDURAS AND THE CAYMAN ISLANDS REMAINS POORLY ORGANIZED. UPPER-LEVEL WINDS ARE HIGHLY UNFAVORABLE FOR TROPICAL CYCLONE DEVELOPMENT AT THIS TIME. HOWEVER...COMPUTER MODELS UNANIMOUSLY BRING A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM...ACCOMPAINED BY RAINS AND GUSTY WINDS...NORTH AND NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD OVER CUBA...SOUTH FLORIDA AND THE BAHAMAS OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.
BECAUSE THE SYSTEM HAS NOT DEVELOPED...AN AIR FORCE RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT MISSION HAS BEEN POSTPONED. ANOTHER PLANE IS READY TO INVESTIGATE THE AREA ON SATURDAY...IF NECESSARY.
ALL INTERESTS IN THE NORTHWEST CARRIBBEAN SEA...THE BAHAMAS AND FLORIDA SHOULD MONITOR THE PROGRESS OF THIS SYSTEM AND PRODUCTS FROM YOUR LOCAL FORECAST OFFICE.
