Formation Chance Now 90 Percent, Too Soon To Know Where It Will Go.
BY: STAFF REPORT | BocaNewsNow.com
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The red area you see above is where forecasters at the National Hurricane Center say a system is likely to develop. While we stress the red area is not a cone nor necessarily a direction of travel, it is a reminder that preparing for a hurricane is never a bad idea.
If the system does form into a named system, it will become “Elsa.”
The system represented by the “yellow x” is likely to dissipate within the next day, according to forecasters.
This is the mid-afternoon update, Wednesday, from the National Hurricane Center:
Showers and thunderstorms associated with a broad low pressure area
and tropical wave located about 1300 miles east-southeast of the
Windward Islands have become better organized since yesterday.
However, recent satellite wind data indicates that the disturbance
does not have a well-defined circulation. Environmental conditions
appear generally favorable for continued development, and a tropical
depression or storm is likely to form during the next day or two
while the system moves west-northwestward at 20 to 25 mph.
Interests in the Lesser Antilles should closely monitor the progress
of this system, as advisories on a potential tropical cyclone,
accompanied by tropical storm watches for portions of this area, are
likely to be issued later today.
- Formation chance through 48 hours…high…70 percent.
- Formation chance through 5 days…high…90 percent.
