Hurricane Center Says 40 Percent Chance. Next Name Is Kappa.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The National Hurricane Center is monitoring yet another system that could develop over the next few days. The system, in the south Caribbean, is unlikely to pose a threat to Florida. But a mid-November tropical system, pushing the storm count solidly into the 30s, is notable. The system is marked by the orange oval you see above. As we have pointed out all season: an oval represents where a storm may form, not a direction of travel.
Here is the early morning outlook from the National Hurricane Center.
