HURRICANE CENTER: Believe It Or Not, Another System May Form

Florida hurricane News weather

Hurricane Center Says 40 Percent Chance. Next Name Is Kappa.


BOCA RATON, FL ( — 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.

are forecast to be conducive for some development, and a tropical 
depression could form by the end of the week while the system moves 
slowly westward or west-southwestward across the southwestern 
Caribbean Sea.
