BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The National Hurricane Center says the red x that you see above is likely form into a tropical depression either over the weekend or early next week. Forecasters say it has a 90 percent chance of development in the red oval area over the next five days. What happens after that remains unclear. The system is between Africa and Florida.
The yellow x, which has been watched for days, is now unlikely to develop into much of anything, but another wave expected to move off the coast of Africa on Sunday has a 70 percent chance of developing into something that may be worth watching.
We stress the five day outlook is not a tracking map but where systems are expected to form or develop. Official tracking begins once a system becomes named or numbered.
