BY: STAFF REPORT | BocaNewsNow.com
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — What was briefly Tropical Storm Bill is on a path to nothingness, but the National Hurricane Center says the system to watch is the orange X in the Gulf of Mexico.
There is a 90 percent chance of that system developing as it moves north. That means Florida and Gulf Coast states need to pay attention. It may be early in the season, but that doesn’t mean a storm can’t quickly become a problem.
The red area, below, indicates where forecasters believe the system will develop. It is not necessarily a path of travel.
Here is the early morning outlook from the National Hurricane Center:
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: The National Hurricane Center has issued the last advisory on Post- Tropical Cyclone Bill, located a couple hundred miles southwest of Cape Race, Newfoundland. Disorganized showers and thunderstorms continue over the Bay of Campeche and southern Mexico in association with a broad low pressure area. This system will move little during the next day or so, and little if any development is expected during that time due to interaction with land. However, the broad disturbance should begin to move northward on Thursday, and a tropical depression is likely to form by late Thursday or on Friday when the low moves across the western Gulf of Mexico. Regardless of development, heavy rainfall will continue over portions of Central America and southern Mexico during the next several days. Heavy rains could also begin to affect portions of the northern Gulf Coast on Friday. Please consult products from your local meteorological service for more information. * Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.
The National Hurricane Center is watching two systems early Wednesday morning. Tropical Storm Bill is now “extra tropical” and is expected to dissipate today. There is a second system that is expected develop in the Gulf of Mexico. The red zone indicates the area where the system is expected to develop.
