HURRICANE CENTER: New System Has 80 Percent Chance Of Formation


Florida? Gulf Coast? Mexico? Too Soon To Know Path.


BOCA RATON, FL ( — The latest disturbance being tracked by the National Hurricane Center has an 80 percent chance developing into a tropical depression within the next five days. The system, marked in the graphic above by an “orange x,” is currently moving in a westwardly direction. It is too soon to know whether it will turn towards the north — perhaps affecting Florida or the Gulf Coast, or if it will continue to head west.

The Atlantic Hurricane season continues through the end of November. The next name for a storm is “Eta.”

Here is the early morning tropical outlook from the National Hurricane Center.

Is a hurricane heading towards Florida?

While there is no hurricane heading towards Florida as of October 30, 2020, there is a new system that the National Hurricane Center is monitoring. It has an 80 percent chance of formation in the five days, but its path remains unclear.national hurricane center
