FLORIDA: Surprise Tropical System May Cause Wet Weekend

Boca Raton Florida hurricane News Palm Beach County Hurricane

BOCA RATON, FL ( — A pop-up tropical system may make for a wet weekend across parts of South Florida. The yellow X above, just off the Bahamas, is expected to move west into the Gulf of Mexico. The good news: the chance of this system forming into anything of significance is low.

Meantime. Paulette and Rene remain no threat to land but there are two tropical waves near Africa that should be followed. One of them — the red x — has a 90 percent chance of formation. We remind our readers that the ovals above indicate the location where a depression may form. It is not necessarily a path of travel.

Here is the latest from the National Hurricane Center as of early Thursday morning, September 10, 2020:
