BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There was a time where Presidents kept themselves out of Department of Justice operations, and tropical systems waited until June 1st — Hurricane Season — to form. But welcome to 2018, where anything goes, no one cares, and there are no rules or civility anymore.
The National Hurricane Center says there is, incredibly a 40 percent chance of a tropical system forming within the next five days. It is currently just east of Belize and expected to drench “much of Florida during the next several days.”
From the National Hurricane Center:
A broad surface low centered just east of Belize is producing a
large area of cloudiness and showers extending from the northwestern
Caribbean Sea across Cuba into the Florida peninsula. While strong
upper-level winds and dry air aloft are expected to limit
organization during the next couple of days, some gradual
subtropical or tropical development is possible late this week while
the system moves slowly northward into the central or eastern Gulf
of Mexico. Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall is
possible across western Cuba, the Cayman Islands, and much of
Florida during 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.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent.
