BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The big red “x” that you see on the map above has a 90-percent chance of developing into a named storm within the next few days, according to forecasters at the National Hurricane Center.
While too early to know what — if any — impact it could have on South Florida, the very early track suggests it something to watch.
Here’s the early morning update from the NHC:
For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: The Weather Prediction Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Depression Hanna, located inland over northeastern Mexico. Shower activity continues to become a little better organized in association with a broad area of low pressure located over the central tropical Atlantic about midway between the coast of Africa and the Lesser Antilles.
Environmental conditions are expected to become increasingly conducive for development of this system, and a tropical depression or tropical storm is likely to form within the next day or two while moving westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph. This system is expected to begin affecting portions of the Lesser Antilles on Wednesday or Wednesday night, and interests on those islands should continue to monitor its progress.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…high…80 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…high…90 percent.
