These short videos will focus on the biggest wind and wave concerns over the tropical North Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico during the next five days.

The briefings will be released twice weekly - every Sunday and Thursday by 2200 UTC (5pm EST / 6pm EDT) - and made available on the TAFB Marine Briefings playlist on the NHC YouTube account (nwsnhc). Notification will be provided about the newly available bi-weekly briefings via a tweet from NHC/TAFB's Twitter feed.
