BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A system in the Gulf of Mexico has the attention of the National Hurricane Center, and that means it should have your attention as well. While the system as a 50 percent chance of development — and seems unlikely to impact South Florida — it’s another example of why your hurricane plan should be in place now.
Emergency preparedness experts continue to be concerned that new Floridians are not ready for what is predicted to be an active hurricane season.
From the National Hurricane Center Sunday morning:
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: A trough of low pressure continues to produce a large area of disorganized cloudiness and showers over the Bay of Campeche. Slow development is possible over the next several days while the broad disturbance moves little, and a tropical depression could form in this area late in the week. Regardless of development, heavy rainfall will be possible over portions of Central America and southern Mexico during the next several days. Please consult products from your local meteorological service for more information. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.
The National Hurricane Center is watching a developing system in the Gulf of Mexico. It is not expected to affect Florida, at least as of June 13, 2021.
