BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Tropical Storm Odette formed overnight in the Atlantic and is already on a course to nowhere. But it’s Peter, expected to form later Saturday, that may be interesting to Florida residents.
While the red oval above shows where a system may form, and not necessarily a direction of travel, there is no denying that it pointed in the general direction of the sunshine state.
The system has a 90 percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours.
The system in orange has a 40 percent chance of development.
This is the early Saturday morning update from the National Hurricane Center:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Odette, located a couple of hundred miles south-southeast of Nantucket, Massachusetts. 1. Showers and thunderstorms continue to become better organized in association with an area of low pressure located about 650 miles miles east-southeast of the northern Leeward Islands. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for further development during the next day or two, and a tropical depression or tropical storm is expected to form later today or tonight while the system moves toward the west-northwest at about 15 mph. This system is expected to be near the northern Leeward Islands on Monday and Tuesday, and interests there should monitor its progress. Upper-level winds are likely to become less conducive for development when the system reaches the southwestern Atlantic by the early to middle part of next week. Additional information on this system, including gale warnings, can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent. 2.

A tropical depression could form while the system moves northwestward at about 10 mph to the west of the Cabo Verde Islands before it reaches cooler waters and stronger upper-level winds early next week. * Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.
