BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There are seven systems being watched today by the National Hurricane Center, but no named storm is currently posing a threat to South Florida. However, there is the “red X” in the five day outlook, above, that is worth watching. While the National Hurricane Center reminds us that the oval on the 5 day outlook does not represent a path — just where a storm may form — it stands to reason that anything in that region could start to trek to South Florida.
For now, nothing to worry about. Paulette, Teddy, Sally, Vicky, the yellow x and the orange x are no threats to Miami-Dade, Broward or Palm Beach County.
Here is the Wednesday morning five day outlook from the National Hurricane Center.
