HURRICANE CENTER: Not Done Yet, Two Systems Still On The Map

Florida hurricane News weather

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Thanksgiving is just one week away but the National Hurricane Center remains busy at work, watching two disturbances. While one is not expected to develop, the second — off the east coast — may form into something. It’s too early even for an early forecast, but the activity is notable. Rarely are the tropics still hopping on November 19th.

Here’s the latest from the National Hurricane Center as of mid-day Thursday, November 19, 2020.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
100 PM EST Thu Nov 19 2020

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. Showers and thunderstorms have diminished since yesterday in 
association with a broad area of low pressure located over the far 
southwestern Caribbean Sea just off the northern coast of Panama.  
Development of this system is not expected while it moves little 
over the southwestern Caribbean Sea during the next several days.  
This system is expected to produce locally heavy rains and possible 
flooding over portions of southern Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, 
and northern Colombia during the next few days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...near 0 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 over the western Atlantic. 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
Is A Hurricane Heading To Florida During Thanksgiving Week?

It seems unlikely, but there are two areas of interest being watched by the National Hurricane Center. One, in the south Caribbean, seems to be no threat. The second system, of the U.S. East Coast, does have a chance of formation.
