BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The National Hurricane Center is tracking two more disturbances — in addition to Eta. One seems to have the potential to impact South Florida weather. The unprecedented 29th and 30th named storms of the season — if they develop — would be Theta and Iota. The “red x” is on an eastwardly trek so seemingly no issue for South Florida, but note the orange oval south of Cuba. That has a 50 percent chance of formation over the next five days. We always stress the ovals are not paths, but areas where a system could develop.
Here’s the outlook from the National Hurricane Center.
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Eta, located off the southwest coast of Florida. 1. Showers and thunderstorms associated with a non-tropical low pressure system located several hundred miles southwest of the Azores continue to get gradually better organized. Further development is expected, and a tropical or subtropical storm will likely form during the next few days while the system moves eastward or east-northeastward over the northeastern Atlantic Ocean. * Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent. 2. A tropical wave is forecast to move over the central Caribbean Sea, where an area of low pressure could form in a couple of days. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development, and a tropical depression could form late this week or over the weekend while the system moves slowly westward. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent. Additional information on the central Atlantic low pressure area can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service...under AWIPS header NFDHSFAT1 and WMO header FZNT01 KWBC.
