BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Get ready for what is shaping up to be a busy 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season. There are two systems already being watched by the National Hurricane Center.
While the odds remain low that either of the “Xs” on the map, above, will have any significant impact on our weather, they are both a solid reminder that this is the time to prepare for hurricane season. Craft a plan, stockpile water, figure out where you would go if an evacuation is ordered.
Hurricane season officially starts on June 1st.
Here is the early morning update from the National Hurricane Center:
A non-tropical low pressure area located about 500 miles east- northeast of Bermuda is producing winds to storm force and disorganized showers and thunderstorms. The low is expected to move west-southwestward over warmer waters during the next day or so, and it will likely become a subtropical cyclone later today or on Saturday near or to the northeast of Bermuda. Thereafter, the low is forecast to move northeastward into a more hostile environment by Saturday night or Sunday. Additional information on this low pressure area can be found in High Seas forecasts issued by the NOAA Ocean Prediction Center and forecast products, including a tropical storm watch, issued by the Bermuda Weather Service. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent. A surface trough and a mid- to upper-level disturbance over the western Gulf of Mexico are producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions are expected to be marginally conducive for development before the disturbance moves inland over the northwestern Gulf coast tonight. Regardless of development, the system could produce heavy rainfall over portions of southeastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana during the next few days. Additional information on the rainfall and flooding potential can be found in products issued by your local National Weather Service Forecast Office. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
Yes, the National Hurricane Center is already monitoring two systems as of May 21st. The Atlantic Hurricane Season doesn’t officially begin until June 1st. Follow the latest on BocaNewsNow.com.
