Hurricane Center Says Systems Could Form By Thanksgiving

Florida hurricane News Palm Beach County weather

Next Storm Names Are Kappa and La.


BOCA RATON, FL ( — There are two systems being watched by the National Hurricane Center. Neither are likely to pose a threat to South Florida. It is rare that any system of significance forms in November, let alone multiple systems in late November. The Atlantic Hurricane Season — at least in theory — ends at the end of the month.

The potential systems are marked by the ovals above. We always stress: the ovals mark a potential area of development, not a direction of travel. Paths are only forecast once a system develops into a depression or storm.

The next names: Kappa and La.

Here is the Wednesday morning forecast 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 
Depression Iota, located inland over El Salvador.

1. A broad area of low pressure could form in a day or so over the 
southwestern Caribbean Sea.  Any development of this system is 
expected to slow to occur during the next several days while the 
system moves slowly west-southwestward or westward across the 
southwestern Caribbean Sea.  Regardless of tropical cyclone 
formation, areas of heavy rain are possible during the next several 
days from Nicaragua southward across Central America and into 
Colombia.  These rains could cause new flooding concerns, especially 
across previously inundated areas.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

2. A non-tropical area of low pressure could form between the Bahamas 
and Bermuda by early next week. The system could gradually develop 
subtropical characteristics through the middle of next week while it 
moves northeastward. 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
Is A Hurricane Coming To Florida For Thanksgiving?

Unlikely, but the National Hurricane Center is monitoring two systems that could develop during Thanksgiving week. Neither system is traveling in the direction of the United States mainland. The next names are Kappa and La. hurricane center November 18
