BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The National Hurricane Center early Tuesday morning says the system we’ve been tracking for several days is now one to watch. It has a 70 percent chance of developing into a tropical depression within the the next few days. What happens after that remains unclear — it could dissipate, it could further grow.
From the National Hurricane Center:
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: 1. Thunderstorm activity associated with a large low pressure system located more than 800 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands has increased and become a little better organized over the past several hours. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for development to occur, and a tropical depression is likely to form during the next day or so while the disturbance moves westward to west-northwestward at around 15 mph across the tropical Atlantic. Conditions are forecast to become less conducive for development by the end of the week. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.
