BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There is brand new “yellow x” on the National Hurricane Center’s map, even though we are knocking on the door of November. The “x” is likely to move west in the Caribbean, but as is the case with all tropical systems, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on it if you are anywhere would it could conceivably go. The NHC says there is a 60 percent chance of formation over the next five days.

Here is the mid-day Thursday outlook from the National Hurricane Center.

expected to become more conducive for development of this 
disturbance during the next couple of days, and a tropical 
depression could form over the weekend or early next week while the 
system moves westward across the central and western Caribbean Sea.
