No Concern Yet For Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Palm Beach County, But Watching Waves Is Key
Tropical Storms Nana, Omar Still On Map
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The yellow and orange “x’s” above may very well merge and become a storm that could threaten Florida. That’s the latest from the National Hurricane Center in its extended 5 day forecast. We stress these systems — IF they grow — are several days away from being anywhere near a place that a forecast can be legitimately accurate. For now, they’re just systems to watch while serving as a reminder that this is peak hurricane season.
Meantime, Nana and Omar continue to be followed by the National Hurricane Center, but are not on a course for the United States mainland.
Here is the latest from the NHC. We can not stress more: don’t panic. Just be aware that these storms are out there.
